|I am researching the Friedrich family tree. Carl Ernest Friedrich arrived with his parents William and Caroline Manthey Friedrich and at least one brother, Paul, in 1882 onboard The State of Indiana arriving at the port of New York. Settling in Passon, New Jersey, he married Anna Marie Schultz and had a son. He had come from Dreilinden, Prussia, Germany. After arriving in Gonzales, Texas, he and his wife had a large family. Other family members also settled in South Central Texas.Other surnames researching: Gescheidle-descendants of Christian and Ernestine Gotthardt Gescheidle of Gonzales, Texas. Arriving form Germany in 1845-1846 at Port of Galveston. Christian was from Auenstein, Germany.|
Schultz; Knetig-from Waldenberg, Germany, now part of Poland; Frankenhauser; Powe; Carson; Maeker; Roberts; Peters;etc. All resided in South Central Texas and many still do.
