This is what I
have on Johann Heinrich Friedrich Gerke (1831-1890):

"1. Henry Friedrich (Johann Friedrich Wilhelm) Gerke. Born on 4 Sep 1831
in Stemshorn, Hanover. Henry Friedrich (Johann Friedrich Wilhelm) died
in Fort Wayne, Allen Co., IN on 30 Aug 1890; he was 58. Occupation:
Grocer. Religion: Lutheran.

On 7 Nov 1855 when Henry Friedrich (Johann Friedrich Wilhelm) was 24, he
first married Sophie Mary Meyer, in Adams Co. IN. Born in Germany.

They had the following children:
2 i. Louis H. (1856-1933)
3 ii. Henry L. (1864-)

Henry Friedrich (Johann Friedrich Wilhelm) second married ? who died in
May 1907 in Milwaukee, WI."

Is Sophia Gerke his daughter by Sophie Mary Meyer or by the second
unnamed wife?
Do you find the above information correct? (except for the omission of
his daughter Sophie)?
Could you give me Sophie's information?

I would be happy to share what I have.
