                      WILHELMINA EMMA MUMME


   Emma was born near New Braunfels, Texas.  She was christened Jun 19,
1862 by Rev. Gustaves Elley at the First Methodist Church there.
   Emma's mother died when she was seven years old.  Emma remembered
that all of the family gathered by the bedside and they all sang a pretty
song with her mother just before she died.
   Gottfried Lange and Emma eloped December 23, 1878.  They lived the
first years of their married life on a farm at Albert, Texas, in Gillespie
County.  In the early 1900's they sold this farm and moved to San Antonio.
Here, they owned and operated a chicken farm.
   After their retirement, they bought a home in Harper, Texas, where
they spent their remaining years.
   Gottfried and Emma celebrated their golden wedding anniversary a
short time before his death.
