I am from the Gold family that lived in the area of Koblenz, Germany in the early 1800's. Jean Nickolaus Gold was born Oct 15,1789 in Schwarzen, Germany.He married Marie Eva Rodenbusch,born Dec 3, 1788 in Audenbach,in Nieder Kostenz, Prussia. They had 4 children, Johann Peter Gold born Jun 8, 1810, Johann Wilhelm Gold born Mar 14, 1812, Anna Catharina Gold born February 10, 1814 and Johann Jacob Gold born Jun 18, 1816. Johann Peter Gold and wife Regina Zimmer and two sons left Germany in 1852 and landed in Indianola, Texas.The father died soon after landing.The mother remarried to Heinrich Eckhardt.Johann Wilhelm Gold, with wife and children, also came to Texas, arriving in Galveston in December, 1850. Many of the descendants of these Gold families still live in the Fredericksburg, Texas area.If anyone would like more info on these families let me know by email.I would like to know if there is anyone that might have info on the other two children, Anna Catharina Gold and Johann Jacob Gold. There is nothing available on the info we have.
