Hi Diane,

My grandmother was Rosalie Schiller (b. 4 March 1876 at Wesley, Texas. She had 2 brothers Frank and Joe and a sister Tracy. I know that the family Bible says that their parents immigrated from Bohemia and that Rosalie's mother was also named Rosalie (but I do not know her maiden name). I know that the 2 sons eventually settled to Temple, Texas. Tracy married a Haenish. And my grandmother Rosalie married my grandfather, John J Koppa and settled in Rosebud, Texas to raise 7 daughters and a baby brother, my dad, John W Koppa Sr.

I am going to do some calling and try and find some Schiller relatives and see if anyone can give me any immigration info.

The name may have originally been Shiller or Silar..

I'll let you know what I find if you will do likewise. Or anyone else reading this message.

Keeping in Czech, Tom Koppa bigdaddytk@hotmail.com

Surnames: Pomykal, Schiller (Shiller, Silar)
Hello Tom! Did you ever find your Schiller roots? Your Rosalie Schiller sounds very much like the sister of my g-grandmother Anna Schiller Pomykal. In the 1880 Census these two girls are found in the household of Franz (b.1843)and Rosalie Schiller in the Schoenau community of Austin TX, along with Francis, Franz, Emilie and Terezie. The only other Shillers I find in this area at that time are 57-year-old Josef Schiller and 38-year-old wife Anna and five TX-born children. Family tradition has it that my ggrandmother Anna and her parents immigrated at the same time as did the Pomykals in 1872 (she would have been 4), and that she and her future husband George Pomykal were on the same boat that landed on the coast. I would love to have more information on these Schillers if you have any.
