I would like any information about the Hahns and the Hahn Ranch in Wharton County, Texas. My gr-gr-grandfather Gideon Wiginton was the postmaster from 1897-1919 in what was once called Hahn Prairie, Texas located about 11 miles from El Campo. I'm trying to learn more about how Hahn became a little town and the families who lived there, etc.

I have located two people so far who have photos of the old school, post office, store and community center. I have done extensive research on everyone (120 and counting) buried in the Hahn Cemetery. I've also begun researching the 40+ surnames who are buried in Hahn and the 20+ maiden names I have found.

Many people from the Frels area as well as the Oakland, Colorado County area moved to Hahn around 1900. In fact, the Clear Creek Cemetery in Colorado County and Hahn Cemetery in Wharton County can almost be considered "Sister Cemeteries". There are so many connections!

Any information on people from Hahn would be greatly appreciated!
