New Braunfels, Texas, Gruene Hall, Oldest Dance Hall in Texas

Gruene Historical District is located within the city limits of New Braunfels. Founded by the sons of settlers Ernst and Antoinette Gruene, the community had a bank, post office, school, general store, lumberyard, gristmill, dance hall, and cotton gin. It also had access to two railways for shipping cotton bales. Its most famous attribute was the dance hall, a family activity in those days. Due to the failure of the cotton crop from boll weevils, and the failure of the banks after 1929, commercial activity slowed to a crawl. This village is now a Nationally Registered Historic District where one can dine in the ruins of the original gristmill or enjoy live music at Gruene Hall. The community may also be researched through the Sophienburg Museum and Archives.

We floated the Guadalupe River all day, and then went to dinner and shopping in Gruene’s shops. I took my son when he was nineteen to Gruene Hall to watch the “Fabulous Thunderbirds” live on stage for his birthday. I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday, and he told me to go listen to the band that night. So, we did. It was great. We had a blast together. I drank Dr. Pepper while he drank mixed drinks. We laughed about how I got him drunk, and I was “stone cold” sober. George Strait played here many times years ago. I did not get to see him though.

Family is Forever! God blessed me with a wonderful, loving family, and we were blessed with the opportunity to get together for the holidays.

“This cemetery was set aside on the original homestead of John Tudor III. His first wife Martha Searcy is the earliest recorded burial, but there could be earlier lost stones. His 2nd wife Frances Phillips Tudor is also probably buried here.

John was born in Virginia and the Tudor family migrated to North Carolina, and from there John and at least eight siblings came to Kentucky, most staying in Madison county.

John and Martha Searcy Tudor are my 5X great-grandparents. Everyone buried in this cemetery is directly related to John and Martha.

Susannah Tudor Long is the daughter of John and Martha’s son John Hooker Tudor. Sometime after she married Perry Long, the old homestead came to their ownership and most of the burials here are some of their 13…

It is known that the widow Mary m2. to the co-administrator of the estate, Henry Rose, some months prior to the filing of the Inventory 1 Ap. 1721. Proof that he left 2 young sons comes from the Deeds & Estate records of Henry Rose, when he explains the relationship to his wife Mary, and refers to them as step-sons when he deeded land to them. John Tudor, SR. had modest household furnishings, some pewter, a Bible, and a Book of Common Prayer (suggesting a link to the Church of England), and shoemaker’s tools along with a ‘parcel of leather. (suggesting he had been a shoemaker by trade).

JOHN TUDOR JR. was b. ca 1720 ; d. 1782 Granville Co., N. C.. It is highly probable that he was born in VA.. He was born no later than 1720 and could have been born a few years earlier.

There is evidence that she was a daughter of Valentine White, and OUR TUDOR LINE traces to this Elizabeth. The 2nd Elizabeth was the mother of BLUMER TUDOR, our ancestor.

The children of John Tudor, JR., were: A. Phoebe Tudor, b, ca, 1750; m. John Morris. B. Henry Tudor, b. ca. 1752; d. by 1782; m. Nancy, C. John Tudor III, b. 1754, had a R/W pension. A R/W soldier who went to Madison Co., KY..

Moravian Traditional Music


Frederick Family Genealogy

Moravian traditional music represents a part of the European musical culture connected with the regions around the western Carpathian Mountains. Many styles of Moravian traditional music exist, varying by location and function, but much of it is characterized by a specific melodic and harmonic texture related to the Eastern European musical world. According to Czech musicologist Jiří Plocek, Moravia  is the area where the European East musically meets the West.

Moravian folk bands are mainly centered around a string section and a large cimbalom, which are often complemented by other instruments. Moravian traditional music influenced many Czech classical composers’ work, especially Leoš Janáček, who was at the forefront of the Moravian folklore movement. Towards the end of the 20th century, Moravian folk music had a noticeable influence on the Czech jazz scene, and folk songs have been adapted into rock bands‘ repretoires. Today, there are…
