Olga Ladewig Kimmel
Birth: Aug. 20, 1880
Breslau
Lavaca County
Texas, USA
Death: Apr. 14, 1914
Yorktown
DeWitt County
Texas, USA

Olga Ladewig was born 20 Aug. 1880 in Breslau, Lavaca Co., TX to Johann Heinrich & Auguste (Kettner) Ladewig. She married Paul Kuemmel on 16 Mar. 1899. Paul Kuemmel, spelled "Kimmel" in English, was born 26 Jan. 1882 in Voigstedt, Province of Saxony, Germany, to Friedrich Ernst Kuemmel and Therese Helene (Rabenaldt) Kuemmel. Paul & Olga Kuemmel had seven children--Ida, who married Hugo Piske; Alfred who married Maria Maureschat; Anna who married Adolph Carl Schroeder; Estella who married Alfred Simicek; Frieda who married Werner Diebel; Ella who married Otho Griffen; and Edwin who married Ernastina Gras.

The Kuemmel family made their home in Gruenau, near Yorktown, Lavaca Co., TX. Around 1900 Paul and Olga were crowned "King and Queen of Maifest" at Gruenau Hall, by reason of Paul having won the shooting contest. Paul and Olga Kuemmel were members of the Nopal Lutheran Church. Olga died 14 Apr. 1914, apparently of complications from delivering her last child. Paul died 3 years later, on 11 Aug. 1917. Both are buried in Sandy Gate Cemetery near Nopal, DeWitt Co., TX. Paul and Olga (Ladewig) Kuemmel were both members of the Fraternal Order the Sons of Hermann who helped conduct their funerals.
