I am searching for Henry Beneke, who was last known to be in Spring City, Washington in1886. He was one of three brothers that came to America. The first to come was William Nicholas, who changed his name to Bankey,in 1867. the other was Charles, who signed his letters as Charles Benecke and was in California. They had seven brothers and sisters. This family possiblly lived in Bremen. I know that William, my Great Grandfather sailed from Bremerhaveni Sept. 1867.
