My grandmother was Rosalie Schiller (b. 4 March 1876 at Wesley, Texas. She had 2 brothers Frank and Joe and a sister Tracy. I know that the family Bible says that their parents immigrated from Bohemia and that Rosalie's mother was also named Rosalie (but I do not know her maiden name). I know that the 2 sons eventually settled to Temple, Texas. Tracy married a Haenish. And my grandmother Rosalie married my grandfather, John J Koppa and settled in Rosebud, Texas to raise 7 daughters and a baby brother, my dad, John W Koppa Sr.
I am going to do some calling and try and find some Schiller relatives and see if anyone can give me any immigration info.
The name may have originally been Shiller or Silar..
I'll let you know what I find if you will do likewise. Or anyone else reading this message.
