8. August Schubert
August Schubert and Ida Merz were married 1900 and began raising theirfamily in the shadow of their parents around the York Creek-Geronimo werethey were both born. Later August and Ida moved from the YorkCreek-Geronimo area moving his family to Kingsberry where August triedhis hand at running a butcher shop between about 1900-1910. August andIda had their only son F. A. in 1901 shortly after their marriage.About 1912 when they broke up the Driscoll Ranch, August and otherrelatives moved to the Banquette area and he purchased a farm off of fmrd. 665 between Driscoll and Alice. Dad said it was very close to thelarge gas well that blew out right off the highway. During a down turn inthe economy about 1914, August was forced to give up his farm. Later hedid share cropping for a Mr. Schultz west of Banquette, Texas. Over thenext 20 years, August and Ida earned their living farming outside ofBanquet. During this period that the family lived on the Schultz farmbetween about 1915-1935 August and Ida had their second child Gertrude in1916. Mr. Schultz built some nice homes on his places and Dad said theywere very proud of their accommodations. Evidently the old farms houseshad large porches because according to Rosa Lee nee Emshoff Schubert itwas at a dance held on the porch of Ida and August's home that she metand later married Elmor Brune "Slick" Schubert, one of Otto's children.Dad said the farms all had nice Barns too. During the Depression era, F.A. had secured a good job at a refinery outside of Banquette. He gotAugust a job at the same location, south of Banquette, about 1935 atwhich time he and Ida moved to Banquette to live the remainder of theirdays. The property that they built their home on was next to F. A. 'shouse. Dad said that August worked at the plant until his death orretired shortly before his death. As the 40s began, August, who was inhis 60s by now faired World War II as every one else did and at the ageof 73 he died August 08, 1951. Ida continued to live in their home inBanquette until her death in 1963.
Ida was a beautifully kind great grandmother that had a heavy Germanaccent. She showered all her great grandchildren with much affection andas I recall never said an unkind word about anyone. She was surely agreat helpmate to August during his lifetime and was loved by all.
