Rev. Heisig page updated

Hey folks,

I noticed some old pages were missing photos, probably due to transfer back to WordPress, so I’ve spent some time refurbishing and just fixed Rev. Ferdinand Heisig’s page, my great-great grandfather. What an interesting chap and what it must have been like to leave Germany in the 1800’s, marry a French-woman in London, then take the family of 10 to Galveston with the goal of carrying German Baptism to Texas!!

The Reverend’s first wife Elisa Marie (CT’s mother) is buried not far from where I live now, out near Brenham. I would love to know more about her. For awhile Scott and I were shopping for property out there. We had a dream of having a place in the country. What if we’d bought something near Independence where he started that first church.

One of my genealogy contacts sent me this photo back then, care of Washington County Genealogical Society. Maybe one day I will go out there and try to find it. I may have to knock on someone’s door so I don’t get shot!

Enjoy re-reading about the good Reverend, and please let me know if you like the site! It helps to know even one person is reading to keep me going. 🙂

I need to fix more pages but for now I think I’ll head back on over to the Moore side. Love to all.
