I'm looking for information on Captain Martin Peske, born in either 1810 or 1812 in Prussia. He married Franziska Bullacher (Boulacher, Bulacher) of Rixheim, Alsace in either 1844 or 1846 (there are two different dates recorded) in Brazoria County. Martin appears in both Brazoria and Galveston Counties in the 1850 census because it appears he had a boat, the Sloop Alamo, in Galveston.

I would like to know where in Prussia he came from, what year he migrated to the U.S., and where he first landed. I've seen his surname spelled Peske, Pesk, Paske, Peski, Pescki, and Peska.

I've also seen mention of a "Martin Peske Survey" in a 2001 Marble Falls, TX city council meeting, so Martin may have owned land in various counties.
