Re: [TexasCzechs] Kret Family from Novy Hrozenkov, Moravia?
The Galveston Immigration Database shows a Peter Kret arriving at Galveston
2-23-1906, evidently alone because no family is shown. He was 40 years of
age, headed for Flatonia, Texas, Departed Bremen aboard the Brandenberg. He
was a farmer.
No other persons with that last name came up on the database?
The record said he was from Austria.
