My husband's great-grandmother was Wilhelmine Henriette Bothe (or Botke, Bodke, etc). She was born in 1847 Germany and died in 1918 Fayette Co, Tx. She was married to Karl Fritz Sommerfeld. She is buried in Carmine Cemetery in Carmine, Fayette Co, Tx.
Any connections? This is in the same area as Brenham.
