Trying to fill in a family tree going back through Ida Persky (b. 1856 in ? Texas, d. 8/19/1922 in ? Texas) who was married -- I don't know when -- to Charles (Carl) Paul (b. 1849 in Anhalt, d. 4/20/1898 in ? Texas).
I believe Carl and Ida had four children: Antonia, William, Charles, and Herman.Antonia Wilheminia Paul was mymaternal grandmother.
Ida's lineage, as far as I've been able to determine, seems to be ...
Ida's father: Johann Fredrick Gabriel Persky (b. 8/17/1807 in Suelze, Mecklenburg d. ? in New Ulm, Austin, Texas) married some time before 1852 to:
Ida's mother: Louisa Schroeder (b. ? Mecklenburg, d. ? in New Ulm, Austin, Texas)
Johann's father: Christian Ludwig Persky (b. 1769 in ?, d. 6/3/1815 in Sulz, Mecklenburg) married 12/20/1796 in Bad Fuelz, Mecklenburg to:
Johann's mother: Catharina Ilsabe? Kruse (b. 3/4/174 in ?, d. ?)
I have no information abou the ancestors of Christian Ludwig Persky (although I might have Catharina's parents names).
