Am seeking info. re: Imhoff family of Tx. Louis Imhoff owned/operated a machine shop in Georgetown, Tx in 1920'S and/or 1930's & poss. longer. "Imhoff House" on Main St. in Georgetown (listing on Nat'l Registry) apparently named for him, although he and wife Elizabeth (Roberts) Imhoff not the original owners/builders. Imhoff Dam nearby also apparently named for him. Louis' g-dad and dad were among founders of New Braunfels (Comal Co), Tx, immigrating aboard Johann Dethard in Dec. 1844 from Cure Hessen. Family = Methodist. Louis' g-dad Heinrich Peter ("Henry") Imhof, Sr. (a miller/farmer/gunsmith by trade) was family patriarch. Louis' dad Johann Peter ("Peter") Imhoff lived a time after N.B. in Spring Branch & even. settled in Fredericksburg, Tx., as did my g-dad (bro.of Louis), Heinrich A. Imhoff. My g-dad Heinrich A. Imhoff born in Fredericksburg on 01/03/1867; died in Fredericksburg on 05/31/1957. Louis also born in Fred., Tx., on 10/03/1870; died on 11/15/1942 in Georgetown. Don't know if Louis and Elizabeth Imhoff ever had any children. They are buried together at Georgetown cem.

My g-dad Heinrich A. Imhoff, as an adult, mostly of Thrall, Williamson Co., Tx. Survived the big flood there in the '20s. Wife = Mary Margret (Beavers) Imhoff, orig. of Alabama, buried in Taylor, Williamson Co. Before Thrall, Henry A. & fam. also lived in Manor (Travis Co), Tx. His trade was blacksmith/parttime jeweler). Known to have worked with/for Ed Brodbeck as b.s. His daughter = my g-mother, Inez M. Imhoff (born about 1903 in Manor?, Tx; died unexpectedly in 1935 in San Antonio) leaving 5 orphans -- Peter Pat, Michael, Jeanette, and Oscar Davis (via 1st husband James Davis), and Mary Ann Crow (via 2nd? husband, Shannon Crow). Inez buried in SAT under name, Inez Crow.
