    I was very honered to know that all this information along with photos were on the internet. My Dad was Edwin Charles Toepperwein, My Grandfather was Edwin Conrad Toepperwein and my Grandmother Dora Bell Patton. My two brothers, Mickey or Michale J. Toepperwein and Dale D. Toepperwein currently reside in Boerne. My Dad and Grandmother Dora were born in Boerne. I am so proud to be part of The Toepperwein Family. God bless you, Virginia (Gina) Toepperwein Rodriguez
