I am trying to find out as much as possible about Christian Samuel Sturzenegger and his family. He was born in Herisau, Switzerland in 1869. He married Nannie Josephine Fortune in Texas in 1896. He died in Pomona, CA in 1952. His father's name was Samuel Sturzeneger.

Christian and Nannie had three children all born in Waco, Texas:
Ida Vera Sturzenegger
Kathleen Vida Sturzenegger
Christine Muriel Sturzenegger

Nannie's father's name was John Fortune.

Christine Sturzenegger married Odell Bryant Barker in 1922. I am named after one of their sons, a WWII hero.

Thank you in advance for any information you can give me.
