I am looking for any information on Henry Petri,b.Nov.1857,Germany. Wife,Fredricke,b.April 1862,Germany. Son, Henry Jr.,b. Dec.1881,Germany. Henry Sr., Fredricke & Henry Jr. immigrated 1885 to Austin. Henry Sr. owned the Phoenix Saloon in Austin. Henry Jr. bought saloon from his father and renamed it HENRY's. Henry Sr. was a stone mason when he first moved to Austin. It is my understanding that his name appeared on the entrance to the Courthouse or City Hall. Henry & Fredricke had two more children born in Austin, Carl,b.Oct.1886 & Lilly,b.Feb.1889. I have also been told that one of the Henrys was Commissioner. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
