I think the Geis family in Bastrop county can be traced back to John Geis who came from Villmar, Germany in 1846 and settled in Pin Oak, Texas. He had two children Christian Geis and Margaret Geis, who married John Laux. He also had a stepson, named Henry Brahm --which is where I come in. Christian Geis married Barbara Schafer and they moved up to Archer County. Christian's children were Henry Geis, Margaret Geis who married Albert Hoppe, Ellen Geis who married Henry Schuelke, Mary Geis who married James Riney, Bertha Geis who married J. D. Doughty, Kate Geis who married Edwin Hall, John George Geis, Charlie William Geis and Albert G. Geis. Are you descendant of any of these? Can you tell me a little more about your gd. parents etc. I would very much like to find descendants of this family.
