I have some info on the Badke family. Henrietta Badke married my uncle James Hersey Nichols from Louisiana. They lived in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for many years before moving to Louisiana. Henrietta is still living though James Hersey has passed on. I believe she is around 80 now. I can get dates but all I have right now are his: b.Jan.16,1918 d.Apr. 29, 1977. Henrietta's father was Henry Otto Badke, b. Aug. 12, 1896 d. Nov. 17, 1959; and her mother was Hazel Mae Chaffin, b. Nov. 12, 1896 d. Nov. 17, 1989. Henrietta has one sister who is still living in Wisconsin, I think. She is married to a Bartos. Henry Badke's father was Rudolph and he was from Alsace Lorraine, France. His mother was Henrietta Dempsy II, from Berlin, Germany. Henrietta has lived alone since my Uncle Hersey died 24 years ago. I live about 30 miles away from her and will see her at Christmas time. If anyone would like any further info let me know and I'll get what I can from her. You can e-mail me at email@example.com.
