My husband's g-grandmother was Albertine Caroline Krugmann, born Sept 16, 1848 in Brandenburg, Germany.She married William (Wilhelm) Johle before 1864 in Germany.This family came to the United States about Feb 1869.They entered through Galveston, Tx, and eventually settled in Carmine, Fayette Co, Tx. Albertine and William had 8 children.Their daughter Louise (third child) was born in November 1868, the last one to be born in Germany.Family stories tell that the family came to America when Louise was 3 months old, which is where we get the Feb 1869 date of immigration. This info was supplied by Louise's daughter, and handed down to the family.
Albertine died in May 1888 in a tragic fire.Her daughter Alma was outside washing clothes, over a hot pot which was over a fire (that's how they did laundry).Alma's dress caught fire, and her mother ran out to help her.Both died from burns.They are buried together in the La Bahia Cemetery, near Carmine, Fayette Co, Tx.
Are there any other with the Krugmann name out there?Would love to find a connection to my husband's family. Thanks Pat Hargus Sommerfield
