    4. [S386] Interview with Raymond "Ray" Eckermann, [Eckermann p. 47].
      BIOGRAPHY: Raymond "Ray" Eckermann (brother to my Grandmother Anita Eckermann Voigt) told me a family "story" that was handed down to him. The four Eckermann brothers, August, Heinrich, Louis, and Ernst all lived near each other in the Industry, Texas area. One year Louis' crops were destroyed by hail. At the time, it was believed that natural disasters such as hail where inflicted on people because they were out of favor with God. Thus as a result of the hail storm, the three brothers of Louis refused to associate with him and his family. This caused bad feelings between the families for many years.
