There are Bergers still in LA, and all the ones in Shreveport are related.My grandfather was Joe C. Berger of Haynesville, LA.I believe his father to have emigrated to the US from Germany (also named Joe or Joseph Berger), in the early 1900's.When Joe Sr. arrived, he settled in the Dallas, TX area, and married Katy (katherine)W. Palmore. Children were Joe C. and Frances Berger.Joe moved to LA in the late 1930's or early 40's. Joe Jr. married Vivian Arlice Beene Berger.Children were Joseph Christian Berger, William Beene Berger, and John Robert Berger.all 3 are married and living.William is my father.
I am looking for information on Joe or Joseph Sr. and how he arrived in TX.He died shortly after Joe, Jr. was born and little is known.Any help would be appreciated. Nancy Berger-Schneider
