Conrad's Stories

The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

Bertha Adam Froebel

I thought it would be really easy to come up with a title for this blog, but it wasn’t. Every name I came up with had already been taken or just didn’t sound right and then I remembered a letter written in 1927 by Bertha Adam Froebel Haby, one of Conrad’s daughters, to her grandson Guenther Froebel. In the letter she wrote about her father, one thing she said about him was, “My father was a great story teller when I was a child and I can remember many of his stories…”  and Conrad’s Stories was born!!

There is a copy of the letter on file at the Family History Center, Boerne, TX. The original is owned by the Froebel family.

Do you know any of his stories or stories about other settlers in the Kendall County area?  Just click on comment and tell your story!

    Is this Bertha Adam Froebel the one who lived in San Antonio and was married to Udo “Jack” Froebel? I always thought it was but you mention her grandson and I did not think they had
    children….unless she had one with Haby….but she was rather old by that time, or at least the
    one I am related to was.

      The excerpt came from a letter written by Bertha Adam Froebel Haby. She was the daughter of Conrad and Adalbertha Bergmann Adam. You are right, Jack’s wife was also named Bertha. It drives me crazy when several family members have the same name!! Thank you so much for reading Conrad’s Stories.

      Hi, Dorothy, I just figured out our cousin relationship. You and my Dad are second cousins which makes us second cousins once removed!

What do you think?
