dollgenerstone1Gravestone for J. Dollgener and Auguste J. Dollgener at Round Grove Cemetery, Lewisville, Texas.

Stone reads:

Hier Ruhet in Gott
1863 – 1929

Wir hoffen dasz dein Seelenfreund
Der ewig treue Hirt
Ders hier so wohl mit dir gemeint
Dich schoen empfangen wird.

Hier Ruhet in Gott
1863 – 1926
So left nun wohl ihr meine Lieben
Der Tod hat mich von euch vertrieben
Nach kurzen Trennungs schinerz
und Weinen Wird Christus
Wieder uns veremen

J. Dollgener’s inscription roughly translated:

Here Rest in God
We hope that your soul friend
The forever loyal shepherd
That here so probably with you meant
You will nicely receive.

Auguste’s stone roughly translates:

Here Rest in God
So left now probably
you my love death have me of you driven out
after short separation
ski mink and wines
becomes Christ Unite again us.

The Dollgener’s were a founding family of the Round Grove United Church and the Round Grove German community.  The stone with the German inscriptions is in keeping with the German background of this family.

I’ve been researching their influence in this area. These are my direct descendants. My grandmother’s maiden name is Dollgener and Auguste and Julius were her great-grandparents.
