Katherine nee Oswald Buelow was my great-great grandmother. She lived in  
Elizabethpol and took care of my Grandfather, Bernhard Buelow, before he was  
married. I don't know if we are related or not, but I would be interested 
to  find out.

I did a quick check on  ancestry.com and the Doctor's name appears on 
various US census' as Herman  Ohswaldtor Herman Okswaldt or H F 
Oshwaldt.  The information there  says his parents were born in Germany 
and he was born in New York. Earlier  on, his wife was Annie Oshwaldt and 
later (1930) Julia Ohswaldt.  Not  much help, but  he seems to be an 
American, son of German immigrants  and medically trained in USA.

Interesting article about Germans in  Texas..

It clarified for  me, why a sister of my grandfather's sister went to 
San Antonio back in  1888.
