Author Kearney looks for aspects of this migration overlooked by earlier writers. To do this they formed an association Verein.
What would be so hard about bringing families or single men into the so-called Fischer-Miller Grant within the next 20 months?

He bought 10, acres and established the town of Fredericksburg as a way station for immigrants heading north from New Braunfels for the Llano river.
More importantly Meusebach signed a private treaty of peace with Comanche leaders. All seemed possible. And yet the Verein went bankrupt and sold its assets. Several ran away and their story and the story of Nassau is told in minute detail.
