I'm looking for data or connections on g-grandfather Frederick Krell & any Krell relatives or cousins, living or dead, apart from the Didear family: b. Saxony (Ger. "Sachsen"), Germany c. 1840-60 (eastern Germany: Dresden/Leipzig area); stowed away on fishing boat heading for Newfoundland banks and was forced to work the boat for 2 yrs before being allowed to leave c. 1870's; wound up in Helena, Karnes Co., TX; m. #1 Albertina or Albertine (b. 1847 Prussia, Germany, d. 1891, bur. Concrete Cem., Guadalupe Co., TX) had several kids with her per 1880 census, including Frederick II and Lena (b. 1885, m. 1909 Wm. Emmett Butler, grandson of Karnes Co. land baron, d. 1953); m. #2 Telitha or Tellitha Brown (b. 1852 Missouri, prob. Phelps Co., d. 1936, buried Mt. Hope Cem., Crystal City, Zavala Co., TX) and had more kids as listed in 1900 census, including Charley (served in WW I & came out with shell shock) and my grandmother Hedwig Krell (b. 1897 in Helena, m. 1914 James Monroe Didear, d. Apr 1974 in Corpus Christi, Nueces Co., TX).
