Wm Koch

His wifes name was Alice and they lived on Thrifty Road. He was a farmer.Alice was 64 and born in Germany.They had been married 25 years. With them lived a grandson Leroy Ashcraft age 17, b. Tx.
I did not find William Koch in the 1880 census for Texas.The closest I could come in 1900 was a Wm. Koch in Lavaca, Tx. b. 1857 in Germany. Wife Annie and a slew of children. He immigrated in 1868. If you think that is him, let me know and I will give you the rest of the information.
