Other facts


Married Arthur Richard Jackson EALAND


  • The 1900 census reports a complicated household headed by widow EmmaHicks, with older children named Ealand and younger children namedHicks.  The Ealand children are reported as Emma's stepchildren, so itappears that Emma's first husband was a widower named Ealand who hadthese two daughters when Emma married him as his second wife.

    Based on the children's ages and surnames, Emma must have married theHicks children's father between December 1890 (when Harriett was born)and about January 1896 (about 10-11 months before George Hicks wasborn).

    Christine Hesser was enumerated two times in the 1900 census.  Inanother listing, she is included with her parents' household in nearbyGuadalupe County, Texas.

    Most genealogies lack Emma's parents, but most report her name asHildebrandt.  One detailed genealogy clarifies that Christine is ahalf-sister, the last child of Emma's mother, who married a secondhusband named Hesser after only a few years of marriage to JohnHildebrandt who died.  Another genealogy was confusing since it alsohad Hesser as Therese's maiden name of Emma and Christine's mother,Therese or Theresia Schneider.See the followintg Ancestry genealogy:
    --  Jentsch Family Tree,

    One genealogy shows two husbands, but reports the first husband ofTherese Hesser (Hesse) as one Heinrich Saenger, not a Hildebrandt.This reports Emma and several other Hildebrandt children as childrenof Therese Hesser and this Heinrich Sanger, without any mention of thedifferent surname.  The second husband of Therese in this genealogy isGeorge Hesser, Christine's father.

    In 1910, the Ealand girls are not in the household.  They are marriedrecently before the census in Milam County, Texas, to brothers Charlesand Daniel Fowler.
