Wilhelm Flato and Sophie Welhausen were married 05 Jan 1848 in Austin County, Texas. By 1850, in Austin County, Texas they had daughter Eliza Flato.
In 1860, in Fayette County, Texas they had 6 children: Eliza, Charles, William, Joseph, Rudolph, Henry, Alma
In 1870, in Fayette County, Texas they had 8 children William , Henry, Rudolph, Alma, Edward, Paul, Oscar, Max Flato.
In 1870 there is an Eliza Jersig (22 Texas) and a J. Wm Jersig (28 Austria) in the Flato home.I believe this is J. Wenzel Jersig and wife Eliza as the ages and dates match the 1880 Wenzel (38) and Eliza (29) Jersig ages and birth sites.
In 1880, Sophia and daughter Ann Flato liviing in the L. P. and Sophia Amsler home in Fayette. And sons Charles and Henry Flato were living there with their wives and children. In the F.P. and Alma Yeager home were found Paul, O. C., and Herman (8 Max?)Flato. Rudolph and Edward Flato were not found in the 1880 Fayette County, Texas. Did they die or move away.
I believe the 1870 Census taker listed Eliza (Flato) Jersig with her Flato siblings and then her husband J. Wm. Jersig at the bottom of this family.
