Carl Conrad Welhausen of Hidelsheim, Hanover, Germany, was caretaker of a Ducal estate. He came with his family to the US in the late 1840s or early 1850s and settled in Cat Springs, Texas. He was married to a Marya Fricke. There are several Welhausens who live in Shiner, Texas. Would like information on Welhausens of Hidelsheim.
