Serbin

Serbin is seven miles southwest of Giddings in southwestern Lee County. More than 500 Wends, under the leadership of Pastor John Kilian, immigrated from Lusatia to Texas in 1854, forming the mother colony of Wends in Texas. When the railroad by passed the town in 1890, Serbin began to decline.

Every once in a while, I learn something. Theodore Umlang is also listed in Giddings. I suspect that the brewery never moved, just the name changed on the tax forms.

Theodore Umlang 1874-1880
