Has anyone doing research on this family or area found a reference book about the history of the "PAGEL SETTLEMENT" of Lavaca County Texas?
JOSEPH SCHAEFER, FRANK SCHAEFER, FLORIN MEYER, VINCENT MEYER, JOSEPH ELSTNER, FRANK APPELT, JOSEPH HAUSMAN, FRANK HAUSMAN, I have recently learned that these men and their families all came to Lavaca County, Texas from Germany on the same sailing ship in September/October of 1853. I would very much like to correspond with anyone who may be researching any of these men's families.
Also, does anyone know if there are archived copies of the "STICKER NEWSPAPER" of this Lavaca County area from 1920-30? Submitted by Mary Margaret Meyer - firstname.lastname@example.org
