Gottlieb Dement (Dament/Daimant) m. Anna Rumpe in Stabeno, Germany, 1850s. One child, Emilie Lisette. Dement family shipped Gottlieb & Anna off to Texas when Emilie Lisette was 6 wks old. Gottlieb died soon after getting to Texas. Anna remarried to widower named Ringener. Emilie Lisette m Thomas Jefferson Hallman, 3 children, Hallman deserted her. She divorced & married August Kopisch, farmer near Old Ocean, Texas.
Gottlieb & Anna were my GG grandparents on my mother's mother's side. Would like to contact any relatives in Germany, either line, also any Ringeners descended from Anna, any Kopisches descended from Emilie Lisette.
