Trying to prove Adolph Kirschke (1872-1955) was the son of Gottfried (1837-1910).
I found where Gottfried was buried in Cat Spring Cemetery, Austin, Texas.
Could Gottfried's name have been John Gottfried Kirschke?
In 1900 census of Austin County, Texas:John Kirschke50; Mary kirschke 48; Pauline 20 daughter; Charles Palm 22 son-in-law; John 2 months grandson.
1910 Austin, Texas:Charles Palm30; Pauline 28; Ernest 10, Edwin4;Gottfried Kirschke73 father-in-law; Anna Kirschke72 mother-in-law.
I know there is mistakes in census lots of times.Is John and Gottfried the same person?
