Edward Lee GUMMELT was my GG Grandfather. He and his brother's Peter and Gottlieb and a sister Pauline immigrated to Texas from Posen Province in the early 1870s. I'm not directly related to the PURCZINSKY family, but there were GUMMELTs that did marry PURCZINSKYs. There was also an Augusta FREYTAG GUMMELT who had children Amelia and Gottlieb that also settled in Texas about the same time. They lived in the Hallettsville area (Lavaca County, Texas). I have not been able to directly connect these families at this time. Edward Lee settled in Washington County, TX. His brothers and sister were in the Washington County area, but moved on to McLennan, Hamilton, and Falls Counties.
