Dear Patricia: Thank you so much for posting your message! My great great grandfather was Fritz Krugmann. He was born in Germany and died in Texas in 1917. I don't know his wife's name, but he had 2 children: Lena Clara Krugmann, born 1 Feb 1887 in Carmine TX and Fritz Jr., who was also born in Texas (probably in Carmine as well). Lena is my great grandmother. She married Edwin John Albers of Austin, TX after her mother had died. But that's another story for later. Fritz Jr. married Olga, and at some point his father-in-law, I'm assuming Olga's father, Julius Somerfeldt, lived with them and their children. It is curious that your last name is Sommerfield! It's late and I can't figure it out yet, but you and I will get it right, I'm sure. I hope to hear from you soon. And poor Alma and Albertine... my heart breaks again. Liz
