They had 12 children, eight of them came along to Manvel, Texas with them. Namely, Robert, Elza (Camp), Effie (Kahla), Erich, Meta (Crainer),Paul, Edwin, and Clara (Mohr).
Richard Kreuzer was a blacksmith. He ran a blacksmith shop in Manvel, sold ice cream, later sold milk, always sold eggs and as others in that time raised all the food for family and stock that he could. He, like his neighbors, had a "smoke house" where pork could be hung and cured in winter and of course the iron wash pot to render the fat from the hogs, pan sausage was fried, put in earthenware crocks and the lard poured over it hot. These could be used all winter and in spring until the weather caused the lard to melt.
The old Kreuzer home was a gathering place for family and friends. Many folks shared meals, a laugh, and a trick or joke. Good timed were enjoyed there. The home was built about 1919 at 6802 Kreuzer Road. Oak trees there were planted by Robert Kreuzer and the cedar trees in the front yard came from South Dakota.
Richard Kreuzer loved to play 42 dominos and smoke a pipe. His barn was kept "clean enough to eat off the floor".
