I am a retired school librarian and have been interested in family history and Kendall County, Texas, since high school.
For years I have collected bits and pieces of information about my family and Kendall County. In 1979, with Margaret Kutzer Morries, I transcribed the 1870 Census of Kendall County. The Genealogical Society of Kendall County, under the direction of Kate Skinner-Klee, published the transcribed version. I am a charter member of the Society and was the first editor for their newsletter/journal Keys to the Past. While reading through land records, I discovered that the Adam family had farmed a portion of my parent’s property for over 100 years. In 1984, the Adam Farm was recognized as a Texas Family Heritage Farm. The rest of my parent’s property was purchased in 1909 by my great grandfather, Julius Adam. I now live in the 1909 part.
I have been looking for a way to share information and stories about the family and settlers of Kendall County while I organize and sort through my drawers, boxes, and notebooks. I also wanted to have a place for others to share their stories too. So, I created Conrad’s Stories to connect and reconnect with relatives, descendants of early settlers and to share information so we will know from “whence we came.”
