I Don’t Know Much About Joseph Bergmann my 3rd Great-Grandfather

Joseph Bergmann

I don’t know very much about  my 3rd great-grandparents, Joseph and Theresia Ohnesorge Bergmann. They arrived in Galveston on the ship Texas on 12 June 1853. Their destination was Bexar County. In New Homes in a New Land, Joseph Bergmann from Reichenberg, Bohemia arrived with 11 persons in his group. I have 7 accounted for and possibly one more named Gustav, that’s a total of 8. Who are the other 3???

Children are:

  • Adalbertha, born 30 October 1836 married Conrad Adam
  • Rosa born 10 August 1841 married Wilhelm Dietert
  • Amalia Margaret born 27 August 1844 married Heinrich Dietert
  • Anton born 2 April 1846 married Ernstine Beyer
  • Johanna born 16 September 1849 married E. A. Ferdinand Toepperwein

Some facts about Joseph Bergmann:

  • 30 September 1856 applied for citizenship
  • 1859 signed petition for create Kendall County
  • 14 March 1864 applied for a cattle brand BI and lived near Menger Creek near Boerne
  • By 1870 is eligible to vote
  • In June 1880, he is 80 years old. He and his wife are living with Henry and Amalia Bergmann Dietert
  • He died 2 January 1882 and is buried in the Boerne Cemetery
  • In September 1882, William Dietert was appointed temporary administration of the Estate of Joseph Bergmann. His main job was to “collect from Anna and Rosalia Schubert, of Reichenberg, Bohemia, the amount due by them to the heirs of Joseph Bergmann deceased.”
