General Notes: Husband - Frederick SENN
==========================================================================================

     A family legend that is unravelling:
Came from Germany with family. Had been wealthy until the Kaiser destroyed everything.
Had three sisters.  Was married and had three children. Wife died during Civil War.  
Fought in Civil War for the North. Was in a military prison. His sister raised his
children. While in prison, he met a Confederate POW named Wills. When they were released,
he decided to go with his friend back to Texas.
Had a farm near Waco in Robinson.
     Another family legend:
Built a church and set aside a portion of the property as a school, churchyard and
cemetery. He, Annie, Naomi, and Henry are buried there. Robinson Cemetery.
     One more family legend:
Frederick's brother was a doctor at the "Mayo Clinic". Could this be Nicholas?
SENN, Dr. Nicholas, at Chicago, June 2, 1908 (death) (not related to us?)
     I can't find any proof that his first name was William.

Ima Senn said his name was William Frederick Senn.

This is his TEXAS family, there is also a NEW YORK family.

==========================================================================================
Death Notes: Wife - Barbara ???
==========================================================================================

I believe Barbara died in New York State.

==========================================================================================
General Notes: Wife - Barbara ???
==========================================================================================

Barbara almost certainly had Huntington's Disease and passed it to son, Fred. Fred passed
it to his sons Cecil and James and daughter Naomi. Those people passed it to their
children and the list goes on.
