Old City/Trinity Episcopal Cemeteries
Hi Pattie
I have sent several edits for some of your memorials listed at Old City Cemetery but should be at Trinity Episcopal Cemetery. I believe I found the source of confusion online about these cemeteries. There is a transcription online at Cemeteries of TX but they are listed at Old City Cemetery instead of Trinity Episcopal Cemetery. The author of the transcription incorrectly posted those at Old City Cemetery instead of Trinity Episcopal Cemetery. She admits this on her findagrave #46434886. I believe you added some these cemeteries and control them? The Cemeteries of TX website where this transcription can be found is no longer maintained as the owner passed away. The email I sent to possibly correct it bounced. Would it be possible to add the link to her transcription and make note of this incorrect transcription on the cemetery page of both Trinity and Old City so that other volunteers do not add duplicates or take photos for no reason? The link can be found here

Floyd Feyrer
Josef Feyrer's parents
Hi Patty,
My name is Floyd Feyrer; Josef was my grandfather. I'm very interested in talking with you about Josef's parents. Many years ago, when I was at the cemetery in Praha, I saw the graves of Josef and his father.
His father's monument was made of iron and was painted. It rusted since then and was painted over with no information there now. The name I saw painted on his father's monument was also Josef Feyrer; I took a picture of it but that was lost over the years. I think it said he was born in 1825, but that's all I remember. I never found any other record of his father. Since Josef was a blacksmith, he likely made that monument for his father.
I'd like to know where your information is from. I couldn't find any record on the internet of Jacob Feyrer with a daughter Annie. I found a Jacob entering the US at Ellis Island with his wife Anna. I don't know what's correct. I would like to hear from anyone willing to help. You can email me at; please do.

RE: Kortwig
Alma Glause-Kortwig is in our family. She married William Charles {W C}

The Glause family is related to the Raaz family, which is my main interest.
You do not have to trasnsfer her, but please enter her maiden name so other researchers will find her name.

Alma's parents: Friederich Glause & Elise Henrichs

I do not want credit for the above mentioned information. I like to see the memorials without extra clutter.
Alma was born & died in Lavaca co.,TX

Thank you for posting their memorials.
