  • Notes 
    • “The younger brother of the pioneer father, Peter Carl Johann von Rosenberg, named Ernst Christoph Ludwig von Rosenberg, was born at Eckitten Estate in 1800. His parents were divorced when he was three years old. He spent his youth in the service of the Russian army and later was a Prussian artillery lieutenant, but he relinquished his commission and came to America in 1821.

      “He landed on the Texas coast about October, 1821. The party was known as Long’s Expedition. They took possession of La Bahia (Goliad) and then were taken prisoners by Mexican troops. They were released upon promising that they would settle peacefully in the country.

      “Ernst Christoph joined the Mexican Army and became a lieutenant colonel, but espoused the cause of Iturbide. He may have been shot upon the downfall of Iturbide, because he was never heard from again.” [4]
