Giddings

Giddings, county seat of Lee County, is fifty-five miles east of Austin and 100 miles west of Houston.

Thanks to a map, and actually reading the website, I have decided that theUmlang brewery is listed twice. Theodore Umlang is first listed as a brewer in Serbin, seven miles to the southwest in 1874-1875. I suspect that Umlang never actually moved the brewery, but that by 1878, wherever he was living stopped being considered Serbin, and started being called Giddings. I have changed the operating dates of the brewery. My primary sources do not show that the Umlang brewery was reporting taxes between 1875 and 1877. Maybe he forgot to file. Maybe they forgot to list him.

Recently, Umlang's Great Granddaughter, Suzanna Carter, contacted me in the course of her genealogical research. There is little known about Umlang, but the family's oral history says he also owned a cotton gin and was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings. Suzanna graciously sent me a photo of her great grandfather and his wife Anna Marie Moellenberndt.
