We don't live in Texas, but we are related to the Spaeth's. My husband's great great aunt was Johanna Besten, who was married to Matthias Spaeth. Anton Spaeth the first was his brother. I have the marriage register for both Matthias and Anton. Augusta Spaeth was a witness at both weddings. Matthias Spaeth was a witness for Anton.Rector Joseph Spaeth married Anton and Clara.Matthias and Johanna named one of their sons Joseph Anton Spaeth. I also have some pictures of the children of Matthias and Johanna.
