Looking for any kind of information, whether fact, story, hearsay, etc., for HUGO SCHLADOER born April 16, 1845, who was murdered by a man named Gustav Ehlers on May 16, 1891. Hugo was married to Marie Catherine (maiden name unknown) and the 1880 Kerr County census shows he had four daughters; Agnes, Adelheid (or Adelina), Bertha and Minna.

Marie Catherine Schladoer was born 5/9/1840 and died 6/13/1885, six years before Hugo's murder.

Hugo and Catherine are buried in the Quihi Community Cemetery in Medina County, Texas, next to their daughter Adelheid Schladoer Reitzer, her husband and their son. Since Adelheid would have probably had no connection with Quihi before her marriage in 1898, it is possible that she had her parent's graves moved before her death in 1955.

I have some of the Kerr County court records on the trial of Gustav Ehlers, and am hoping there is more information out there somewhere. I'm posting this to the Kendall County page since the Schladoer family settled around Cypress Creek/Lane Valley, etc. and their descendants still live in the area. Ask your grandparents!!

Thanks!
