Fred A. Kottke: 1863 Germany/MN

I am looking for any information on my great-grandfather Fred A. Kottke. His birthday is May 13, 1863 born in Germany. He married Mary M. Niesen. Had four living children: Dorothy, Lawarence, Mary, and Valentine. Story goes that he was married before and not divorce when he married Mary Niesen. Sometime around the 1910 the law was after him for this and ran away. My great uncle Lawarence said that he was told when logging that his father was killed by a log. Apparently he had something wrong with his wrist that was quite noticable and of course those large ears. That is why he is sure it was him. Dorothy the oldest was born in Milaca, MN. Any information on him or his family, brothers, sisters, or parents would be very much appreciated.
