John Adam Schuessler and his wife Eva came to
Texas in 1845 aboard the ship Dyle and landed at Indianola. They received
their land grand for 320 acres from the Republic of Texas in Bexar County.
They settled in what is now Gillespie County. They called their place
Cherry Springs. They had three sons born to them in Texas. They were
Louis born in 1849; Herman born in 1850; and Adolph born in 1852. One
daughter Katharina died as a child.
