  1. Andy Crews says:

    This is my great-great grandmother.

    1. Kathryn says:

      We’re cousins!!

  2. Polly Harris says:

    Her tombstone reads “Thrasa” which is probably the German pronounciation, but the caption at the top of the page is ‘Theresa”…wonder which spelling is correct.

    1. Kathryn says:

      I agree! Thrasa is the German pronounciation. If I understand correctly, the German spelling is Therese which would be pronounced Thrasa. The “American” spelling would be Theresa. I need to investigate to see if I can find a document she signed with the spelling she preferred. Her mother’s name was spelled many different ways also. I think it was spelled Adelberthe in German and then she changed the e’s to a’s to become “Americanized.” Do you happen to have a picture of your great-grandmother?

  3. Andy Crews says:

    Therese (German) or Theresa (English) would be correct. Thrasa is a misspelling.

  4. Andy says:

    Kathryn, do you know her burial date?

    1. Kathryn says:

      Yes, she was buried in the Boerne Cemetery on January 1, 1927.
