Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Daniel Bode and I was born in Dayton, Texas. I grew up in the Eastgate Community in western Liberty County. Back then, it was an agricultural community and the majority of the people here were of Czech descent.
I became interested in genealogy when I was still in high school. I appreciate my dad's German culture from the plains of Central Texas and my mom's deep East Texas heritage from the Piney Woods of Polk and Tyler Counties.
I am now a school teacher and very active in my church and thankful for all the blessings God has given me!

RE: Oates Family in Texas
Hi Daniel! It is good to hear from you again. You have done a wonderful job adding all those Oates pics. I enjoyed looking at them. Thank you so much for sharing them for us all to see. Information is good, but pics are like icing on a cake! Thank you again and God bless you.

Sincerely, Vickie

RE: Johanna Blum
Hi Daniel, I came from Ernst(Earnest)Blum. He had 2 children with Minnie(M.C.)Patterson who died when my grandfather Edgar L Blum was a baby. Johanna Blum raised him and his sister Cordelia. I have looked at Alfred's name many times and wondered about all of the people who are related to me through his bloodline. My family name is O'Brien.
I have some pictures you may be interested in.....I have a great photo of Alfred's father, Casper Blum III who was married to Johanna. I also have a photo of Ernst Blum and a faded photo of Wilhelm and Katharine Straube Gerhard who were Johanna's parents. Sadly I do not have a photo of Johanna.

I did not correct the error you stated as I was asked by another contributor like yourself to put the info in. I had originally entered the entire grave yard while doing my ancestors. If you would like to take over management of this entry I would be glad to transfer it to you.

Have a blessed day.

I have made the changes and added the links for you. I lived in Dayton in 1969. If you would like I can transfer the memorials to you.

Hello Daniel,
My grandfather was Willie Druesedow (1894-1971 buried in the Taylor Cemetery) who immigrated to the states in 1906 (age 12). The ship manifest shows he was traveling with a Wilhelm Druesedow (age 50 at the time). My Willie settled in Taylor, TX. I believe the Wilhelm (1857-1944) he was traveling with was perhaps your relative. Maybe my Willie's uncle? I feel like my Druesedow line is related to the other Druesedow's in the central Texas and Haskell Tx areas, but I have not had any success in linking them up.
I was wondering if you had any info on that line you would care to share with me. I'm at a dead end on trying to link them up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you sure you have the right number for Frank Bartos' wife? The number you gave me (53466648) goes to someone who was born in the 1960s and died in the 1980s.
