Just stumbled on this thread while googling my Grandfather William Turek m Emma Koh, Parents of my mother Esther Turek. They lived in Bryan, where a great many Tureks lived and surrounding areas like Shiner. I've heard stories of most of these folks as they were my mothers aunts & uncles.
She may be one of the very few still living that knew these people. She is 83 and sharp as a tack and would love to talk to anyone searching for information. I believe she has a some family photos of Tureks. Call me if you are interested in talking with her & I'll put you in touch with her. She lives in Galveston now.
