Surnames: Moller, G E.; Carmela Moller; Godfrey Emil Moller
Godfrey Emil Moller was my uncle by marriage. He married my mother's sister Carmela Yedel (Irilli). He is buried in Liverpool Texas Cemetery along with many of his relatives in marked graves of which I have photos. I believe his grandfather immigrated to Texas to avoid being drafted into the Prussian Army. The Moore library in Texas City Texas has a photo of the grandfather and a college in Arkansas has a bit of information on this grandfather as an early settler in Texas before the Texas Revolution. GE Moller died in 1967. He had asthma, lived on Greens Bayou in Houston, Texas and owned some land there which was sold by Aunt Carmela after Uncle Emil died. Possibly, one or more Mollers had a connection to modern Texas City public works of sorts since I saw GE Moller on a public works sign in Texas City ==== something to do with water works or flood control facilities === not sure though.

Not related.

In the same cemetery, there is another Godfrey Moller (1853-1901) who is likely G.E.'s father. Then, there is a Gottfried Moller (1816-1872) who is likely the grandfather you seek. Gottfried would have been the original German spelling.

The 1930 census indicates that GE is a contractor/road building, so that would seem to coincide with public works.
