I am related to the Yonke family of Kankakee County. I seem to recall running across a federal census record for Herman Yonke and NOT being able to place him in my family. I am under the belief that he is the only Yonke in Kankakee not related to my family. My Yonke's came to the U.S. from Slovenia (or whatever it was called when they left, Yugoslavia?) and are part of an ethnic German group called Gottschee (which were physically relocated after WWI?).
Would you know what nationality Herman Yonke was?
