I am looking for ANY information on the Behring family. Here are some things that I do know:
August Behring was born in Germany April 5 1854 and died in San Antonio Texas (Bexar) on Jan 18, 1930 at the age of 75. The informant on his death certificate is listed as Leo Frerich. He came to USA around the age of four {abt. 1859 +/-) He married Catharine 'Katie' Meuth in 1873 {Jan 30th) in Texas. Catharine was born may 12 1851 and died april 7 1942. They had eight children together:
Sophie b:1872 d:1962
mary:b:1876
Ida: b:1877 d:1935
August (my great grand-father):b: may 4 1881 d:dec 25 1926
Matilda:b:1883 d:aug 22 1956 (m:Albert Schmidt)
Frank (Francis);b:april 2 1886 d:feb 7 1909
katharina:nov 15 1891 d:aug 26 1911
Otto Frank:b:jan 8 1895 d:feb 4 1991 (m: Lena Bartsch)

Their son, my great grand-father, August Andrew Behring married Cecil Rogers in 1909 and they had one daughter together, Frankie (Francisca) Behring. He later married my great grand-mother, Martha Harrington. They had two children together- Mattie Catharine Behring (my Grand-mother) and Benjamin Franklin Behring.

I am trying to locate any immigration, family, sibling information of August Behring Sr. and would also love to know of any relatives, or photos etc of my grandfather or great grandfather. We have no real information. I know my grandfather served time in prison in 1904-1907 and i know he was shot and killed in Florida in 1926 and buried in Texas at the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary cemetery.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
