- She was called "Lottchen." According to Alma Julie von Rosenberg's notes, she was "the daughter of the brother of Dorothea Froelich . . . [and] a cousin of the children of Peter Carl von R [the immigrant] and the very special favorite of Johannes Carl von Rosenberg [Peter Carl's son b. 1826-d. 1906, and Alma Julie's grandfather, so presumably this story has some authority]. This Charlotte, called "Lottchen," was the cousin to whom Carl Johannes [sic] finally condescended to answer a letter after he had firmly declared he would never write a letter to any one in Germany again, because of the grief of the mistreatment of them all during the political upheaval, the sacrifice of their beautiful home, the loss of their jobs after a splendid education-and to Texas for a better life-and they found it too. And this letter was answered after thirty years-because she pleaded for news from them all."
