      Bernard, have you checled the Cenus Records. if you don't know the exact county and town ask the the librarian at your local library for the "soundex for the Gas or the other spellings. She will find it and this soundex card shows the exact page of census reports.  Good luck.

      end of
      my clues, because they left absolutely no paper trail, from
      passenger list
      to Orbituary.
      Passenger list that they came from The Austrian Empire, mabe
      Bohemia, to
      Washington county, Latium, to be specific, then 15 years later to
      Burleson co, Caldwlell. They had one 8 mo. son, Richard and
      some
      years later, 1879, had a Daughter Francis, born there in
      Washington co.
      Up until now, no clue as to where their Village of Origin was.
      Where would I look for some county record, of the birth of this
      Daughter,
      Francis which might have a dab of information where her parents
      immigrated from. I have been to the Catholic archives in
      Austin, and
      got so excited to find the death record of my g grandma Agnes
      Gas, and
      proof of where she was buried ( with a crude sand stone marker, no
      inscription) that I forgot to page back in the book to see if a
      birth
      record exists for the Francis born in 1879. There too, if
      they
      wouldn't indicate in the church death record, where Grandma
      Agnes Gas
      was born, why should they bother with that in the baptismal or
      other
      records of her children. I hate you Gass' for being so
      secretive about
      your home country and village of Origin. After all, George, you
      lived
      there 35 years and you Agnes, left at an early age of only
      25. Am
      sure their son, Richard had some paper work pertaining to all this
      in
      "his drawer" until he died, later selfappointed daughters took
      upon
      themselves to turn these upside down on the burn pile without one
      look to
      see what all this was, but this is their sin and water under the

        I found them on the 1880 Washington Cty census but it just says Bohemia.  George was 40, Agnes 30. Richard 7, Franzika 1.  I will keep checking.  I found this on the LDS.org site.  The name was spelled GAS.  I will check ancestry.

          These records are located at Texas A&M University
          Library in College Station, Texas.
