Hi Richard,

I believe we have a connection; my g-grandmother was Anna Helena ("Lena") Emke. Her sister, Amalia, married Max Kroeger. The information I have says that:
Amalia ("Molly") Emke
b. 1850 Holstein, Germany
m. Max Kroeger July 1869, Germany
children: Doris
Adolph
Arola
Gus
another daughter
d. I don't seem to have this date, but believe is burried in Brookingham Cem, where??

I also have a copy of Lena & Amalia's father's (Hans') will. On the Petition for Administrator/Executor for that will are listed:
father's name
mother's (deceased) name
living sibling's names and ages

I will be glad to share other information about Lena, Amalia and their parents and siblings that I obtained during a trip to Iowa a couple of years ago. I am particularly interested in learning more about their parents, where they came from in Germany and any other ancestors.

I would appreciate any information you might have and, of course, will be willing to share what I have.

Look forward to hearing from you,
Kathy
