Indianola, A 19th Century Gateway to Texas

I know one, possibly more, of my ancestors immigrated to Texas through Indianola on Matagorda Bay.  August Wilhelm Rachuig sailed from Bremen, Germany in 1868 and soon after landing headed for Washington County, where he had friends and, we think, relatives.  As a consequence, I'm interested in the history of the 'ghost' port.
