I am trying to locate any info on Caroline Baron married to Franz Laake; they lived in Bastrop, Bastrop Co., Texas. Caroline was a
half-sister to our ggrandfather August Baron.

Have visited or contacted Dora Laake at the Paige, Texas museum? Aunt Dora is a wealth of information on the history of the surrounding area and very well may know of the person you are seeking.

Good Luck!

I married into the Laake family and am trying to put together a genealogy scrapbook. I am trying to trace (Anna or Sophie) Forke who married Ernest Laake in 1903. The family moved to Paige about 1912. I would like to get in touch with Dora at the Paige Museum. Do you have an address?

Have located info indicating a Franz Laake in Bastrop appears on the 1880 TX Census, Family Tree Maker CD#319. Info so far indicates b. 11 May 1823, d. 31 Jan. 1900, buried in Fairview Cemetary. Franz had a son Frank, who had a son Ernst, who had a daughter Katie, who is my husband's grandmother. Am trying to confirm Ernst's family tree.

I am a first cousin of Doris (Goerner) Laake who married Anton Oswald Laake. Doris currently resides in Paige and is active in the Paige Museum. Her address is PO Box 109, Paige,TX 78659. She wrote a book called "The History of Paige".
Hope that helps.

My husband is a direct descendant of Ernest (aka Ernst) Laake and Anna Forke. Am doing research on his side of the family. Would love to contact you via email for any additional information.

Hello! The only information I have is the cemetery listing, however there are two other people who are researching families in this cemetery. You can try:
LC Johnson []
Or look for Virgil Freels posting on this same forum. I never did get his e-mail. If I can be of any other help, you can e-mail me at or visit my webpage at
The Friendship cemetery is listed under the "Texas Cemeteries" link and than "Other Cemeteries" link.
