Hello, Debby. I tried unsuccessfully to send this message via safezone.net, so here it is via this site. Thanks for the additional info about the Katherine Leopold lineage. I guess all of us are related. Our family visited August Leopold (William E.Sr's son) and his wife Annie Leopold, and their son Arthur's family when we were in Houston, and I remember visiting Nelson's home in Galveston in 1954. Katherine's sister Sophia was my grandmother. She was born in 1884 at 343 Caroline St. in Houston. She married Robert Lyle Sr., who came to San Antonio from Greenock, Scotland, in probably 1885. They moved to DeRidder, LA, probably in the early 1900s, and my mother is the second oldest of 10 children, two of whom were twins who died at birth. Sophia died at 42 of kidney poisoning in 1926, shortly after giving birth to a daughter, who was named Katherine after Sophia's sister, your ancestor. All four of Katherine's sisters are still living, and all of the brothers have died. Your info to my cousin Jeannie Cunningham, Katherine's youngest daughter, about William's coming from Bremerhaven, was new info. I have a gift certificate from Family Search, which will be used to followup on that lead. Let's keep each other apprised of new leads. Thanks for your help. Another Leopold Cousin, Leland Williams
