This work describes the Verein colonzation in Texas, a movement that brought thousands of German immigrants into Texas from 1844 to 1847. The goal of the Verein movement was to create a settlement of German immigrants on the 3,800,000-acre Fisher-Miller grant and in a number of other places in Texas. Of special interest to the descendants of these early Texas settlers is a list of over 4,000 immigrants compiled from German and Texas ship passenger lists, which provides such information as age, names of accompanying family members, place of residence in Europe, name of ship, and dates of departure and arrival.
