My great grandfather was Gustav Heinrich Kretzmeier born in Comal County in 1858. Gustav's father was Heinrich Kretzmeier born in Basse, Germany in 1828 ("Kretzmeier Family History and Family Register" by Clara Kretzmeier, 1972). Heinrich's parents were August Freidrich Kretzmeier born 1807 in Hanover, Germany and Katherine Marie Dorothea Stuenkel born in 1808 in Neustat. I show that August and Katherine immigrated to Texas with their family about 1845 on the ship "Weser". I have partial information for 11 children of August and Katherine: Heinrich (1828); Dorothea Marie ( 1834); August (1842); Anna Regina (1851); Johanna; Wilhelmine; Eduard; Theodor; Hedwig; Herman, and Daniel. I have not yet found a connection to the Kansas Kretzmeiers; but, I do not have any information for Eduard, Theodor, Herman and Daniel and their brother Heinrich was born in Basse, Germany. Please let me know if you learn anything.
