I am looking for any infomation about my Great Grandmother Catherina or Kate Nelke. Her name appears on my grandfather's marriage certificate and on her daughter Martha's death certificate d 1908. She was born about 1827 in Germany, maybe Hannover . A notation on her NY death certificate states that she arrived in this country when she was about seven years old.(about 1820) but I do not know where. She and Charles (d.1892) are buried in Evergreen Cemetry,Brooklyn, New York, with their daughter Mary Kerz.d 1998.Katherina probaby married Carl Ludecke from Flatlands area of Brooklyn, New York about 1850's. She and Carl had 10 children Martha, Simon, Elizabeth,Sophia,Margaret, Mary,Ella, Louisa,Charles and Barbara . If you know of any Nelks in the NY area 1820-1850 but possibly could have been Pa. Maybe if you have a similar reference to names or a Nelk in New York???. I have very little infomation on her.
