This child, Charles Conrad Kraft (later Craft)Jr., was my great grandfather. Conrad and Maria had 12-13 children, most born after they settled in the Florissant (St. Louis) Missouri area. I know that although they were married in Texas and Mary was born there, they already had had two children by that time, one born in New York. A third daughter was born in Kansas, and all children in Missouri. I was hoping that a Texas record of their marriage might indicate more about their earlier history and origins.
