Re: Kiel Family, Hanover -> TX

In Reply to: Re: Kiel Family, Hanover -> TX by Rick Krause of 198

Hi, my great grandfather is Henry Kiel, born 8/01/1841, died 11/09/1910 and buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Lampasas Tx beside his daughter, Nora, who died in 1906. According to my aunt, my grandmother, Mamie, lived as a child in Burton, Washington County. There were 4 girls born to Henry & Rachel(my aunt thinks her grandmother's name was Rachel - not positive) Kiel: Mamie was born as Mary Marie; however, her name was changed to Mamie when she was confirmed in the Lutheran Church. Her sisters were: (I am not sure of any of the spelling of the names) Lena - who married a Krause; Fredrica - who married Gus Hackemack, and Nora - who died a young girl. Mamie was born to Henry & Rachel in 1880 in Raeburg. Mamie married P.J. Blackburn in Washington County on November 1, 1902 according to Vol 14, pg 307. Mamie & P.J. lived in Lampasas. P.J. died on Easter Sunday (April 9, 1944). Mamie died March 2, 1968. They had 8 children, one of whom died as an infant. I remember her talking of taking day trips on the train to Galveston from Washington County when she was a girl. I understand her mother died and was buried in Washington County. I don't know where, but I hope to visit there soon and see if I can find her grave. I feel sure we are all talking about the same Kiel family. If you know the full name of my great grandmother,Henry's wife, will you please let me know. It was so exciting to read all the messages today. I hope we can put some more pieces of the puzzle together.
