Thank you very much for your volunteer work. I'd progressed quite a bit since I originally created this post. Like you, I found a lot of helpful information in the Galveston news papers. Peter and Minnie Mulder had Harry, Maud, and Alois (male). After the divorce, Harry stayed with his mother in Galveston and Peter moved to Warren Texas (with Alois) where he met my GG Grandmother Anna Pislot. Louis was their 1st son. I'm thinking Louis lied about his age to join the military. Later records show him born in 1890. Alois died shortly after they moved to Warren. I'm not sure how or where he is buried. My GG Grandmother Anna Pislot, mentioned "my dear husband and his beloved son Alois" in Peter's obit. No one knew what the meaning of this was until I discovered it was a son from a prior marriage. Peter died in Warren 1900 in a lumber accident. They were about to move to Beaumont where much of my family lives today. Peter is still a mystery. I can find no records on him pr! ior to his marriage to Minnie Heller. Based on his last name of Mulder and birth year 1859, he could have been the son of a civil war solder or potentially a child of the "48'ers". I'm also wondering if he came from Indianola with the Heller's after it was destroyed by 2 back to back hurricanes. Indianola was a popular port for Germans. Harry Mulder lived in Galveston for about 34 years until he divorced Henrietta. I can't find anything on him after that. Again, thank you for your help!
