I have very little information too. Actually, I am researching the Rauch family, which I also have little information on. I am hoping to find descendants of John and Ida (Schultz) Rauch. Here is what I have on William Engelhardt. He was born about 1891 in Lavernia. I think his middle name is Wendelin. he married Margaret Rauch. Her middle name may have been Gretchen. She was born Sept. 22, 1895 in Lavernia. She died Nov. 24, 1931. She is buried in the Lone Oak Cemetery in Guadalupe Co. She may have died while giving birth. They had a son Elmer Lee, who was born Oct. 19, 1929. I believe he was born in Guadalupe co. I have a Rauch family reunion letter from about five years ago that has a Tim Engelhardt listed. I assume he is either a brother or son of Elmer. The phone number listed was not a working number. My grandmother mentioned that some engelhardts had contacted her about burying someone in the Rauch family plot in Lone Oack, but that could have been ten years ago. Her memory is not always reliable. I will see if she has any names or numbers of people who may be able to help you. Let me know if this rings any bells.
