Saw your message about Spiekers. I have some info I recently copied about the Spiekers and Reinekes who came to Iowa from Rolfzen/Steinheim Germany. Sophia Reineke was a sister to my great great grandfather, Johann Reineke. Anton Spieker was, I THINK, a brother to Johann's wife, Maria Spieker. I am pretty sure these are the same people and I have photo copies of the Steinheim and Rolfzen church records for these families. I think they first came to Jasper County and then to Carroll County and then soem Reinekes and Spiekers went to Nebraska. E-mail me at david_reineke@admin.state.ak.us for more info if you are interested. So far I have traced the Reinekes and Spiekers back over 200 years in Germany.
