My family immigrated to Galveston, Texas, from Germany in the mid-1800s. My grandfathers's name is George Jacob Ritzler Sr but that is as far back as I can trace. My grandfather's brother was August Ritzler and he had a son named Philip. Philip had a daughter named Mary Adele. They moved to California and we lost touch with them. My father (George Jacob Jr), my grandfather (George Jacob Sr) and his brother August are all buried in Galveston along with their sister Rose Ritzler Schellhorn(sp??)
George Sr and August survived the 1900 storm in Galveston but according to newspaper clippings we know that a Mary Ritzler perished. We do not know how she was related to our family.
Any information you could pass along would be truly appreciated. Thank you
