FLICK and WASSERMAN families of DeWitt County, Texas

Posted: 28 Aug 2008 5:20PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: FLICK / WASSERMAN / DIETZ / LIENHARDT / MCRAE / et al
I am trying to find a FLICK family that married into a WASSERMAN family. Raymond C. FLICK, born 17 March, 1866, in DeWitt County, Texas, died 10 March, 1924, married Annie L. WASSERMAN, born October 28, 1867. Died June 12, 1939, daughter of Gustave WASSERMAN and Margaret ROSE, on 26 October, 1887 in DeWitt County, Texas. Annie WASSERMAN had siblings: Louisa (married August C. DIETZ), Katie (married Albert F. LIENHARDT), Emil (married Erixie or Rixerine MCRAE), Gustave Frederick (married Ida KUNITZ), and Georgina (married Festus W. ABEL).

I believe that Raymond C. FLICK was the son of Frederick and Mary Anna FLICK. Frederick FLICK and his brothers, Ferdinand and John, came to the U.S. in about 1846. They landed in New Orleans where Ferdinand remained. One of the brothers, Frederick, went to Texas and the other, John, died in New Orleans. I believe that Frederick FLICK of New Orleans is the same Frederick FLICK that went to DeWitt County, Texas. I found Frederick and Mary Anna FLICK on the 1880 federal census for DeWitt County, Texas with the following children:

Alvina Flick b. 1862 Texas
Caroline (Carrie) Flick b. 1864 Texas
Florence Flick b. 1868 Texas
Hubert Flick b. 1870 Texas
Bertha M. Flick b. 1873 Texas
Charles Flick b. 1876 Texas
Paulina Margaret Flick b. July 19, 1879 DeWitt County, Texas. Died Sept. 22, 1949. Married Cecil Ralph MATTHEWS on April 25, 1905 in DeWitt County, Texas, son of John Calhoun MATTHEWS and Ida Belle HAIR. Cecil was born Feb. 4, 1879 in Barnwell, South Carolina.
Lydia Flick b. 1880 DeWitt County, Texas. Died May 11, 1947 in Houston, Harris County, Texas. Married a Mr. GEORGE.

On the 1900 federal census for Cuero, DeWitt County, Texas, ED #26, dated June 20, 1900, I found:

Anna Flick b. Sept. 1843 Germany Widow Immigrated 1846
Carrie Flick b. January 1865
August Flick b. April 1871
Charles Flick b. August 1875
Pauline Flick b. July 1877
Lydia Flick b. October 1879
Joseph Flick b. June 1883

If anyone knows anything about this FLICK family and a possible connection with the aforementioned Flick's of New Orleans, Louisiana, please contact me. There also is a connection between the John FLICK mentioned above and the WAX and HARTEGEN families of New Orleans. John FLICK died at the age of 44 and his obituary, dated April 26, 1889, states that he was a resident of New Orleans for 42 of those 44 years.
