I have more info re the Wittigs. Do you have any to share? Gustav Reinhardt Wittig married Anna Luise Kramer of Fredericksburg, Gillespie Co, TX on 13 Sep 1881. He applied for Naturalization (to become an American citizen) on 24 Jan 1887 in Gillespie Co and was granted citizenship on 22 Feb 1889. It turns out he and Anna had three children, all in Gillespie County: Alvin L Wittig (b 4 May 1889, m Helen Alves abt 1908 place unknown, d 26 Jan 1968 in Bexar Co, TX - they bore one son, my grandfather, and there are many descendants from this line living in Texas); Laura Wittig (b 29 Jul 1886, married someone named Russo, lived in Brooklyn NY for a time, d 12 Aug 1957 and is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in Fredericksburg, no info on husband or children); Max Wittig (b 17 Feb 1884, m 16 Jan 1909 to Alma Louise Eckhardt, d 4 Aug 1962 and is buried in the Greenwood Cemetery along with Alma, they had two children Chester and Guenther). I have two obits each I'm about to post for Max Wittig and Anna Kramer Wittig. Anna and Gustav are both buried in the Der Stadt Friedhof Cemetery, Fredericksburg. Gustav was born 4 Nov 1852 in Leipzeig, Germany and died 16 Aug 1897. Anna was born 15 Dec 1858 and died 6 Apr 1927.
