    Left this comment in another section as well:

    Maria Elizabeth Ristein – indentured servant 1797, from Hamburg Germany; Henry Strackbin – indentured servant 1796, from Hamburg Germany. Both indentured to William Cooper

    The spelling on the indentured servant paper doesn’t show an ‘e’ before or after the ‘n’.

    I just saw this listing and am curious about who the orginal Strackbeins were and from where they came. My family came to Texas in the 1840′s from Frohnhausen Germany.

    Do know where they came from and where in the US did they settle?
    Our branch came from Fronhausen Germany and settled in Fredricksburg TX.

    My great grandad, William Mittel, came over from Germany as an orfan and to live with his aunt and uncle in Loyal Valley just outside of Fredricksburg. I beleive he married a Strackbein, first name would have been Christena. Any information you might have would be appreciated if you still frequent this site.
    Thank You,

    I just came upon your question about William Mittel. I know of a Henry Mittel who married Christina Strackbein. She was the daughter of John Henry Strackbein and Camelia Nixon.
