Igleharts in Texas!!!! About Iglehart History

Hello fellow 'Igleharts' or should I say family. I searched my family name and found this site. It's good to see so many igleharts in one place. Anyway, I'm curious about the other Igleharts that I don't know. However, I am african american, and I heard there were many other 'white' igleharts.My father all told me the name had German or 'Prussian' background. He told me that A white man by the name of Iglehart, and he three sons with names like Henry, Thomas, and (I think) Steven came to the U.S. These sons like came here and settled in diffrent places around the country. One of the sons, married an African American women, and I am claimed to have come directly from him. The City where most of the Iglehart family is in Waco, Texas. We seem to be well known there. My great-grandfather (Henry D. Iglehart) lived there, along with his brothers. He had about 12 grandchildren, one being my grandfather, Thaddeus Iglehart (II). And my father is Aldo Iglehart. We live in Houston, now. I may have gotten my history a bit wrong, I don't hear that story too often, but hopefully, some other Iglehart may have heard a similiar story and is willing to write back.
