With the Texas death certificates online, I have been able to find out more information on the Ackermanns and Renz families. The death certificates has parents names which has really helped with leads on my Watkins side.

So here is the update:
Margarethe Frey was the daughter of Peter Frey, born in Germany and buried with wife, Barbara in the New Braunfels, Texas cemetery. Still looking for census records to help with siblings. As of 1910, Margarethe was living with her daughter Ida (who had also married into the Renz family)according to the Bexar county census from that year. Margarethe was buried at the Wetmore Cemetery in 1915.

No new info on Joseph - his first wife and child are buried at the Comal Cemetery.

Their son Joseph married Annie Renz (the Renz marriages connects the two otherwise seperate Ackermann families of San Antonio).

Annie Renz was the daughter of Jacob Renz, also from Wuerttemberg, Germany and Katarina (Catherine) Korbel, daughter of Conrad Korbel of Hessen, Germany. The name is misspelled in census records from "Kirbil," "Koerbel," "Hoebel," to "Karber." Since I have seen it as Korbel in several records, I will stick with that spelling. Currently I am reserching the Korbels.

I now have a good deal of info on both Ackermann families and will be happy to share, please e-mail at and put surname in caps in subject line so the email does not get spammed. Hope you are all having as much fun hunting and if you have more info, please email that to me.
