Darrouzett, Texas has been hosting the annual "Deutsches Fest" since the year I was born, 1972. As part of the festivities this year, my dad's family was honored as a "Heritage Family". I was thrilled to participate in the parade with a host of distant cousins and some great-aunts. I lost track of where everyone landed on the family tree with 6 or 7 generations of people buzzing around! We had a lot of fun though. We decorated our old flatbed trailer and two pickups and packed them full of newly acquainted family members. Most of my children escaped the throng by riding in a horse drawn wagon instead. (Little traitors...) We proudly flew the colors of our God Blessed United States of America through the tiny town.
- Eva was 8 years younger than George. He was born 1/10/1871 & she was born 6/27/1879.
- They had 5 children (that I know of) Roy in 1898, Ray in 1903, Clinton in 1906 (my great-grandfather), Emma & Fannie
- My great-grandfather Clinton and his wife Bessie (Baxter) also had 5 children.
God bless you all!
