Notes

  • The following birth place, from his emigration record in Wurttemberg(Germany), seems to be for our Gottlieb Fischer.  There were many ofthis name.  So other genealogies may give the birth information forother individuals of the same name from other parts of Wurttemberg,and I may also have settled on the wrong one.  The date of emigrationhere for the US matches their first presence in Texas and the birth ofGottlieb's first child in 1852, according to the 1860 census of thefamily near Fredericksburg, Texas.

    Boatloads, literally, of immigrants from German states were pouringinto Texas at this time.  Whole shipfulls were contracted by agentsfor the specific purpose of settling Texas.  The Hill Country of Texaswhere Fredericksburg is located became a German area, and other areasof Texas became German settlements also.  Northeast Texas along theRed River is another big German settlement area.  German was spokenand continued to be spoken and taught in the schools until the currentgeneration.  Oktoberfest is a today big celebration in Texas Metroareas as wel as the heavily German sections of Texas.

    In about 1852, Comanches took Gottlieb and Sophie's son Rudolph as hewalked along in the woods away from the house.  He stayed with themuntil about 1877, when he was released.  But he went back to live withthe Comanches.  He and his family are registered in Comanche censuses. Thus in the 1870 enumeration of the Fischer family, the oldest childRudolph is missing.
