Elise Wuppermann Texanische Tagebücher 1850-1860 

This archive consists of three files. 

1.Elise Wuppermann--Texanische Tagebücher 1850-1860 This is the transcription, in German, of the diaries that my great grandmother, Elise Tips Wupperman, kept in Texas from 1850 to 1860. 

2.Otto and Elise and Clara This is my mother's translation of those diaries plus two other sections. The diaries are preceded by the letters of Otto Wuppermann, Elise's husband, written from Texas to his father in Germany. These begin shortly after his arrival in Texas in 1848, and end shortly before his wedding to Elise. These are followed by the reminiscences of their daughter Clara Wupperman Tafel, telling of her girlhood in Texas, concluding in 1865 with the family's return to Germany. 

3.The House at Schüren This is my mother's translation of reminiscences by Pastor Ernst Wuppermann about the family seat in the Barmen area in the Wupper Valley, at about 51degrees 15 minutes North and 7 degrees 10 minutes East. In his letters to his father, Otto mentions this property and how unhappy he is that it has been sold.
