Area General Request:
Patrick O'Neill Mon Feb 17 20:56:56 1997
Wanting information from all descendants of colonists from Fisher and Miller's Colony, including Coke, Tom Green, Runnels, Concho, McCulloch, San Saba, Mason, Schleicher, Irion, Kimble, Menard, and Sutton counties. These are the counties that were actually within the grant and contain lands distributed to the colonists. I have indexes of Contracts (papers signed in Germany to join the Society), Transfers (papers to sign over half of the colonist's land to the Society and Fisher and Miller), and am now compiling a list of people that actually received land within the colony. Other related counties should include Comal, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Bexar, and many southeast Texas counties.

Comments:
I am attempting to research the Frank E. BECK familiy. I have not been able to verify his entry into the US. The Family has also thought he came to this country when he was 3, which would be in 1876. Entry on 1910 census would indicate he entered in 1883. I have not located this BECK family on the 1880 census. I find him on the 1900 and 1910 census. Frank died suddenly in 1918. I know where Frank and Mittie are buried. They were my g- grandparents. He married Mittie BROOM, daughter of W.A. BROOM and Nancy THRONTON. The BROOM family appeared on the 1880 census for Victoria Co. This BECK family does not appear to be related to the other Beck family in the area prior to 1870s. Thanks for any help or info.

HALL :

KING and HALL:I am searching for ANY info. re: the surnames KING or HALL. Surely someone in Burnet or the surrounding counties has heard of these names. My grandfather John HALL, says on his marriage certificate that he was from Burnet,TX. Born ca. 1860. He says his father's name was David HALL and his mother's name was Mary and, or, Annie KING. Grandpa went on a cattle drive in the early 1880's with the following men; Bud ALLISON, Jake WILLIAMSON, Cal STUART/STEWART, Jerry (Bowlegs) BUCKELY, Charlie DAVLIN, Sterling CROSS, Smokey HARVEY, Sam BASS, Bill HUMBLE, Fred GARDNER, Sam BENSON & John LEE the trail boss. I know they went through Colorado, because there was some trouble in CO with some vigilanties and they thought "ol Sterling CROSS was dead." The drive was for A.J. DAVIS, S.T. HAUSER and Granville STUART (copper mine kings of MT). The DHS brand. A cousin says that she thought grandpa said they were all related, or at least Bud ALLISON and grandpa were cousins. Grandpa John spent his remaining days in MT and died there in 1937. His life before arriving in MT remains a mystery. He says his mother died in TX in 1872 but, makes no mention of his father, other than his name. Does anyone know if any of the above names are of German decent? I thought HALL was English or Irish. Does anyone know how Kingsland, TX got it's name? Does anyone know how I can access old Texas Ranger records? Maybe grandpa changed his name.

I am seeking formation about the ORITZ landgrant, overlapping between Victoria and DeWitt counties. I also need information about "Lake ORTIZ," found in some early maps on or near the landgrant. I am trying to determine whether this ORTIZ family is related to CLEOFAS ORTIZ, a businessman--my grandfather--who died in 1918 in Victoria during the Spanish influenza epidemic. I would like any leads to CLEOFAS ORTIZ' place of birth and any other geneaological and historical details or references.

I saw a posting from DENNIS C. SCHRAMEK Thu Nov 7 11:19:48 1996 but his Email address is now invalid. Hopefully you will see this on the query list. Hi Dennis, I saw your posting on the Victoria GENWEB site. I am researching my wife's family who live in the Yoakum area. Here is the ORSAK connection that I have: My wife's grandmother was Emma Victoria PETERS. Her parents were Frank PETERS and Rosalie (KOLACHE?) ORSAK. Family stories have it that Rosalie was born in Bohemia in 1879 and sent to Texas around 1884 to live with Joseph and Mary VRIHODA) ORSAK who adopted her. KOLACHE might have been her real name before she was adopted. Joseph ORSAK was born in Bohemia in 1848. Mary (VRIHODA)ORSAK was born in Moravia Sep 8, 1851 and died Dec 11, 1933 in Yoakum, Tx. Joseph and Mary were married around 1873. Please let me know if this ties in to any of your ORSAK information. Thanks, Roland Beausoleil
