It is believed they lived for a time in Courland, Russia which used to be Letland but taken over by Russia. At some time the family moved to an area around Kicin and Zezulin in the province of Lublin, Poland.
Looking for any info on Milla HOFFMAN(N) who married a Gottfried ZILKE (ZIELKIE) She remained in Europe. It is believed they had at least 2 kids - Emma and Matilda (may have been more children) . Matilda married a Adolf KADING came to Canada in 1912 or 1914. Matilda died in 1924 in Ebenezer, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Also looking for any information on August, Ludwick, Mickel and Adolph who are all believed to have remained in Europe but were last heard of prior to the war
