Nangotoo <nangotoo@...> wrote:Tony,Thanks for the update. It was so kind of you to answer my post. :-)Do you know who Charlie's parents are? That would give me an idea of which family he belongs to in myHercheck family. My g-g grandfather was John Herchek (originally Hrcek) who lived in Yoakum and later inthe Cuero area with his family. He had many children and had two very fertile wives in his lifetime. LOL!Being Charlie's last name is Hercheck, that narrows the possibilities down to the sons for Charlie's line, but there are stillmany possibilities. I hope that Charlie will be okay.I am descended from John's first wife, through his oldest daughter (his first child),my g-grandmother, Amalia Anna Hercheck KRUMM. Our family never really got to know theHerchek/Hercheck cousins. My mom remembers visiting her grandmother, uncles, aunts, and cousins acouple of times when she was very young, but it was the depression and times were very hard for herlarge family and the majority of the kids in her family were sent out to work for other families whenthey were only 4 or years old because they couldn't afford for them to be at home. Can you imagine that?They weren't around very often when relatives came to visit-only a few times.NanHi NanThe 3, Boy that were in the wreck was in my grade at St Joe School, Charley Hereheck was my best Friend be cost we bolt Played music, and he told me that Kenny Schroeder may have survive if the car did't fall on him, Kenny had a brother Sylvester that was also a good musician, Charley live in 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schroeder of Yoakum, was killed in a car wreck at 11:16 pm Monday near the northeast city limits.
Two other youths were injured in the same car which skidded on some loose gravel and went through a bridge railing at Supply Jack Creek on Lavaca Street. They were returning from a basketball game at Shiner in which young Schroeder was on to the players. Schroeder was a junior at St. Joseph's high School and an employee of the Yoakum Herald Times.
The driver of the totally wrecked car was Bill Johnson, 16, also a junior at Saint Josephs High, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Johnson of Yoakum. He was treated for head and face cuts. The third youth in the car was Charles Hercheck of Yoakum, classmate of the other two at SJ H, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hercheck of Yoakum, was treated for facial cuts.
Young Schroeder suffered a broken neck and was thrown out of the car as it fell from the bridge into the shallow creek bed.
