Delaplain League and Johann Dube - and his papers?

Monday 21 March 2011 at 09:08 am

Johann Dube and Carl Lehmann set out from Houston in advance of the oncoming Wends to find land to buy.  After several dry runs they settled on what came to be known as the "Delaplain League," a little over 4000 acres around the St Paul's Lutheran Church in Serbin.  Forty of the 41 tracts were sold to the church and Wendish families at a dollar per acre based on the amount of money each family had.  They started living on it right away.  It took a period of time to get it surveyed and a longer period of time for the titles to be transferred from Dube, as the grantor, to each respective grantee.  The deeds can be found in both the Bastrop and Lee County Courthouse.
