We are looking for other Ponfick family members that came to Texas from Pegnitz, Bavaria. Have had some information about Margaretha Catharina Susanna Ponfick (b. 1794) who married Wolfgang Fuchs in Pegnitz & settled (& died) in Buckhorn, Texas. Their son, Lorenz Fuchs (b. 1826 Pegnitz), married Friedericke Kiel in 1847 & settled in Carmine, Texas. I am interested in finding these Ponficks because Carmine, TX, is where my great, great grandfather, Fredrich Ponfick (b. 1825 Pegnitz; d. 1875 Carmine, TX)died. His son, Fritz Henry Ponfick (b. 1859 La Bahia Prairie, TX; d. 1931 Carmine, TX), raised his family in Carmine also. These families must be connected some way to have come from the same place & settle in Carmine.
The information given to my grandmother about the Ponficks from Buckhorn, TX, came from Agnes Ann (Fuchs) Mumme of Dilley, TX. We have been unable to find her or any family members. Maybe, someone will find this & contact us. Thank you.
