This family came to Texas in 1846, I believe on the "Eberhardt" and later are found on the 1850 Indianola census. Their daughter Johanna (Johanie, Johne) was my great-grandmother. The only connection I can find on this family is perhaps they changed their name. There is a Wilhelm von Stiernberg buried in Calhoun county, and a Louise von Stiernberg buried in the Garner plot in Port Lavaca, one of their daughters married John Abner Garner. I am wondering if this might not be one of Johanna's sisters. Her name was Ida M. von Stiernberg and Johanna's sisters name was Mena. Our family came from Hesse-Cassel Germany to Texas and her father was in the shipping business from New Orleans to Galveston and Indianola. She was married in Indianola in 1865-66 to my grandfather, a
Union soldier in the 21st Iowa Regiment stationed there.
