1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 4

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

1844 · German Immigration to Texas

Age 18

Over 7,000 German immigrants arrived in Texas. Some of these new arrivals died in epidemics; those that survived ended up living in cities such as San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston. Other German settlers went to the Texas Hill Country and formed the western portion of the German Belt, where new towns were founded: New Braunfels and Fredericksburg.

Name Meaning

Origin uncertain. Most probably an Americanized form of an unidentified French Huguenot name. There are several references in family lore to origin in the South of France or the Pyrenees. It has also been suggested that this is an Italian name, which seems less likely.
