Need pre-1926 information on the Dierschke family. (1926 and later is in the Texas Birth Records.) Pauline Seidel (b. about 1845), wife of Joseph Franz Dierschke, was my great-aunt. My grandfather was only 4 when the family arrived in Nov. 1867 in Galveston. She arrived on the same ship and was already married and had two little girls. Pauline and Joseph accompanied her parents Joseph and Magdalena Seidel to America from Friedberge, Prussia and first settled in Austin Co., TX, later moving to Moulton in Lavaca County. In the 1890's the Dierschke family lived in or near Coy City in Karnes County and some of the children married into families in the Runnels/Tom Green counties area. I'd like to know who Pauline and Joseph's 10 children married and who the children of those unions were. By the way, I'm not as ancient as it would seem. :~) My grandfather arrived more than 20 years into his parents' marriage, my dad arrived 24 years after his parents married, and I was born in the 18th year of my parents marriage. Thank goodness we can finish our families sooner now! Thanks to anyone who takes the time to help with my quest!
