Yes Jeannie they are the same. I'm absolutely thrilled to finally get a response. I'm from his daughter, Katie, who married William A. Rowlett (apprarantly against her brothers,William, wishes). I can find little of this man. I did find in the 1870 census that he's from Bremerhaven and Mary from Darmerstat. I got his birth date of 16Nov1939 from his obit. I have him dying of 30 Nov 1893 also from the obit, but they are notoriously mistaken. I also know that he was in Hood's Bridgade-a musician, but I don't know when they married. In Houston directories his was mostly a machinest or musician. He worked as a drayman with his father-in-law. I have some old pictures of the family, but we don't know exactly who they are. Do y'all have any? Or, is there anyone around who could identify them? I'd be happy to send copies through e-mail or snail mail. From whom do you descend. I know very little of Kate's sisters descendants. Do you know anymore about 'ole Will or Mary, or do you know any stories. I've heard very few, and most of them from Nelson Leopold, who resently pasted away. Can't wait to hear from you!
