Gerke Family Genealogy Forum
I am currently trying to trace my Gerke relation back to Germany (Prussa) And the years you mentioned in your posting would be the general time that I would also need. Do you know if Adam would have had a brother August who would have married Ernestine Krueger(have found possible change in name spelling) and they had a daughter by the name of Ernestine Wilhelmina (minnie) Gerke. Wilhelmina would have come over to the US possibly pregnant and when she got to the US she married August Vogel. Wilhelmina's birthday is December 6, 1860 and her death was February 16,1952. She married August Vogel on October 10, 1883. August Vogel and Wilhelmina Gerke are my ggrandparents.
Thank you for any help you may have.
