Hill Texas Archive Research Notes
Cookie cutters used by Conrad Wehmeyer and described by Esther Mueller in the article that she wrote about Wehmeyer - her grandfather. It was published in Frontier Times. These cookie cutters were made for Wehmeyer by Adolph Lungkwitz, a tinsmith. See Old Homes and Buildings of Fredericksburg by Elise Kowert, pp. 102-103. There is a reference to Adolph Lungkwitz's cookie cutters, among other items he crafted, and a note that he "became one of Fredericksburg's two tinners" on pg. 88 of William J. Newcomb, Jr.'s German Artist on the Texas Frontier: Fredrich Richard Petri.
