My pioneering ancestors Friedrich Carl Gerke,
born 22/1/1851 in Klein Niederzehren/Westpreussen, and wife
Heinrette nee Zadlick, arrived Pt. Adelaide
1876 on the ship Hurschell.
We understand the original spelling of the name Gerke was Gerhke, and possibly was changed at the entry Port.
They lived most of their lives at Bundaleer Springs SA (near Jamestown). Friedrich died
25th March 1928 at Yongala SA.
I am unaware of any connection at this time between my ancestors and yours, however if you see a link do please let me know.
In any case please save this information on file in case a subsequent enquirer should reveal a connection.
