Inscription.  Prussian immigrants Carl Johann Rudolph (Charles Henry) (b.1815) and Caroline (Schubert) Schiege acquired land here in 1861. Only one of their four children, Charles Henry, Jr., (1858-1935), survived to adulthood. Charles Henry, Jr., built a 2-story home at this site about 1885, the year he married Emma Frenzel. Emma died in 1892. In 1893 Schiege married Marie Becker; together they reared ten children. Schiege established a local cigar factory and also served as Round Top justice of the peace, mayor, city marshall, and alderman. Charles and Marie Schiege are buried in nearby Florida Chapel Cemetery.
