Charles A. Greiner

Lydia Ermel 90,92,181,182,183

  • Born: Jun 1871, Probably Germany 92
  • Marriage: Charles A. Greiner about 1891
  • Died: 1933, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas at age 62

bullet  General Notes:

The 1900 Texas census shows that she was born in Texas. However, it is more likely that she was born in Germany. The evidence for her birth being in Germany is four-fold: #1) In the 1920 Texas census it shows that her parents were both born in Germany, and #2) in the 1920 Texas census it shows that her two oldest daughters' mother (ie Lydia) was born in Germany, #3) in the 1900 Texas census, on the same page there are numerous Ermel families, the heads of which were all born in Germany, and #4) the 1920 Texas census shows her citizenship status as "Alien". So, it is most likely that Lydia was born in Germany, and moved to Texas with the rest of her family. She probably could not speak English, and therein lies the mistakes in the census records.


Lydia married Charles A. Greiner, son of Gustav Greiner and ? ?, about 1891. (Charles A. Greiner was born on Jan 20, 1866 in Basil, Switzerland and died on Oct 30, 1950 in Seguin, Guadalupe County, Texas.)
