Sloss' from Texas born early 1900's of Mexican ancestry

Sloss' from Texas born early 1900's of Mexican ancestry

My Grandfather was born in 1916 "he was the second to the youngest" and his brothers were born in Bay City Texas. Their names were George Sloss, David Sloss, Frank Sloss, Pete Sloss, Joe Sloss and their fathers name was Pete Sloss and he was also born in Texas. It is possible that my great grandfather was white and his mother was mexican from mexico. The mystery is killing us all! MY grandfather had 8 children all born in CA.

I read the History of the "Sloss Furnace" and Sloss Family in Alabama. They did iron works, and welding.
Funny how the Sloss family down here worked at Anglo Iron Works and had Sloss Welding Shop for years.
Perhaps Jose Sloss was really Joe or Joseph Sloss.
The Sloss Family in Alabama was James Sloss and his father's name was Joseph Sloss.
Hmmmmmmm
From research of my family roots:
In Nuevo Leon, Mexico, an American Soldier with Zachary Taylor's troops mustered out near Monterry, Mexico and stayed there to live. Mostly because he married a Mexican (really a white skinned, blue eyed Spanish girl) and stayed and raised a family. His name was John Smith and he is listed under the name Juan Smith, Juan Esmith Juan Esmitt.
So, maybe Jose is really Joe or Joseph. You never know.

Hi Again! I recently spoke to my uncle David, who gave me some more clarification, he told me that his grandfather was named Joseph who originally hailed from Pennsylvania and fought for the south in the civil war, he was indeed a white man who married a Mexican woman!

Hi, I'm currently doing research on my family tree and believe I'm a relative of Joseph Sloss. My name is Natalia Hetfield Wolting and I'm named after my great-great grandmother Natalia Mugersa Sloss on my mother's side.

In speaking to some family this weekend, I found-out that Natalia's husband Joseph lived in Texas and fought in the civil war for the south so I believe we're speaking of the same person. I was also told he was a judge and wanted to verify that this is correct.

His wife Natalia actually immigrated from Spain and is not Mexican which is why she had light skin and blue eyes. In looking at the cenus their child Elvera Sloss would be my great-grandmother.

Please send me more information if possible as I'm trying to dig deeper into my family tree.

Thanks!
Natalia Wolting

Hello JSloss77, Your grandfather was Roy Sloss, correct? I just posted some information on the "Sloss'from Texas born early 1900's of Mexican ancestry" blog. Your grandmother's name was "Betty?" and she was a white lady, right? Grandpa Pete Sloss was half white and his father was white. I am not sure if Joseph and Natalia were his parents because if you look at the Census information attached, they did not have a son names Pedro or Pete of Peter. So I am confused that Uncle David Sloss said his grandfather was named Joseph?? Please email me and let me know if one of the twins was your mother or father (I can't remember if the twins were a boy and girl?).

Hi Carmen,
My Grandfather was George, brother to David, Roy, Frank and so many more. He married Beatrice Sedillo from Texas and he and his brothers all moved to Los Angeles after WWII. My mother is Sandra, she is 4th born of 8, of which there are 7 children surviving and of course my grandmother who is still alive. My Grandfather has been deceased since 1989. I live in the Los Angeles area as do most of the Sloss' from David, Frank, and George. Where is your family located?
