Looking for Schott family

Journal by Turnercat

I am seeking any information about my paternal grandparents. His name was Louis M. Schott and she was Mollie E. Lewis. I think they were married around 1909 in Texas. She died in the late 1950's or early 1960's in South Texas.

Hello Turnercat.

I see a Louis M Schott with wife Mollie E in the 1910 and 1920 census records in Dallas TX.

In 1920, they have 4 sons and 2 daughters:

Ruel M 15
Lewis M 13
Harry C 12
Cara Lee 9
Roy H 1y-9mo
Mary E 6mo

According to these records, this Louis was born in 1869 in Alsace France. Mollie was born in 1890 in Texas.

Let me know if you believe these to be yours and we can dig a bit deeper.

Sorry to take so long to respond but, yes, that is definitely my family. Roy H was my father. I did some digging and found where Louis entered the U.S. in 1870 and lived in Missouri with his family until moving to Texas in the late 1800's. It is a blank between the arrival in the U.S. until around 1900. I think he had another wife before Mollie but can't locate evidence. I also can't find where and when he died or where he is buried. I have Louis's parents as Lorenze Schott and Magdaline Holder and Lorenze's parents as Martin and Katherine Schott (they never left Alsace).
