  • Notes 
    • “Along with her brothers and sister, Wallie’s childhood was one of hard work in dairy farming. She attended the Fiskville school and the Presbyterian Church until she married, and joined the Lutheran Church in Galveston. While Galveston could not furnish Austin’s hills, climate, or relatives, her life was blessed with a good husband, children and visits by her sister and brothers.

      “She was a typical Hornberger, large in stature, blond and jolly. Like her mother she had musical talents, and although she had music lessons she could play the piano quite well by ear. She was also a fine cook and seamstress as were her mother and sister.” [8]
