  • Note:
    Robert and Anna Neumann arrived in America on 29 Sep 1883, with their three children--Oscar, Annie, and Paul--at Galveston Texas. They came from Fromsdorf, Germany, on the ship "Weser" from the port of Bremen, Germany. The ship left Bremen on 6 Sep 1883.

    In Germany, Robert Neumann had been a cobbler.

    They went to Austin, Texas, and were met by Henry Naumann. They settled on the Turner Farm on the Colorado River near Spicewood, Texas, for about 4 years. It is likely that son Joseph was born there. Sometime later they moved to Spicewood, Texas, where they rented land for a while.

    Adolph Wall remembered his mother Annie talking about living in a log house on what later became the Jack and Lera Thompson place and then owned by Halton Ray Naumann. They raised wild hogs in pens there in agreement with the Drs. Yett that ranched north of there. They later farmed the Rice place which they eventually bought, where Max Wall farmed, and later his daughter Maxine and Bill Alman owned.

    Robert declared his intentions to become a naturalized citizen on 25 Jul 1887 in Travis County, Texas. His son Oscar's petition for citizenship states that Robert died without having been admitted a citizen.

    They bought the Lewis Moore place in Spicewood, Texas, in 1890. Robert established two notes to purchase the farm. Both were paid by 1891. Later Chris Fritz and Annie Wall lived there and then Adolph and Elizabeth Wall.

    He died after being kicked by a horse on his ranch.

    The Neumanns were Catholic, but the nearest church was in Austin. They were not known to attend any church in the Spicewood area.

    If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
