Jacob Schier Descendents
Posted by: Gayle Collins (ID *****6339) Date: July 31, 2003 at 20:22:23

I am a descendent of Jacob Schier and we are attempting to find other family members. Jacob Schier was born in Germany (date not known). He married Charlotte Henrietta Wilhelmina Luders (birth date not known). They had two children living at home with them in the 1890 census. Both Jacob and Charlotte are buried in Washington County, near Burton, Texas. Their two children were: Carl Gustave and Wilhelm Johann Frederich Schier.

Jacob Schier brought his family from Germany around 1870. They probably docked in Galveston, Texas and then traveled north to the area around Brenham and Burton, Texas. By the end of the century, many relatives had moved northward or to other areas. Hence, we have lost names and contact with family members.

We have a reunion each year and have recently posted a website in hopes of finding lost family members.
