Carolyn, have you had any luck looking up your Strohmeyer roots? I can tell you my Strohmeyer family who came over from Alsace to settle the city of Castroville, Texas consisted of 6 daughters and 2 sons. The girls names were Anne Marie, Catharina, Madeleine, Elizabeth, Josephine and Mary. The father of the family Francis Joseph Strohmeyer Sr. died in 1847. His wife Catharina remarried in 1850 and had a son named Antone. My great great grandmother, Elizabeth, was one of the daughters. The sons of the family were Francis Joseph Jr.(est. birth 1831) and Aloise(est. birth 1835). I have not been able to locate any of the descendants of the Strohmeyer sons. Antone changed his name to Strohmeyer later in his life, reason unknown. But he was not a blood-related Strohmeyer, only his half-sisters were. He was buried with his half-sister Catharina in San Antonio City Cemetery #4 under the Strohmeyer name. It's possible the two sons went off from the San Antonio area and had families of their own. I noticed you mentioned a Elise Strohmeyer, this is close to the name Aloise. Do you know who Elise's parents were? Please let me know if I could help you with your search. Ron Hesdorff
