Otte Family, McCulloch County, Texas

  of 85

I came across an interview with a Mrs. G. O. Otte in Frontier Times, May 1927, and Im trying to ascertain this womans identity. According to the article, she was eighty years old at that time; she came to Fredericksburg from Germany when she was about five; she had an older sister named Caroline; she settled eight miles south of Brady around 1888; and she had eleven children. I checked the McCulloch County history books, but found no G. O. Otte. I suspect that this woman was Mrs. Fritz (Fernandina Ottmers) Otte, and that G. O. was a misprint. Can anyone confirm this for me? Was there any other Otte family living in McCulloch County at the time? I plan to quote from the article in a book Im writing, so Id like to make sure I have the correct name. Thank you very much.
