Hi Alden,
I noticed your 2010 posts re: Rabe, Raabe, etc. I am currently researching Carl (Karl) Raabe for a friend who is a descendant. You indicated that a Carl Raabe may be a brother to your g-grandfather Heinrich F. Carl immigrated in 1872 to Illinois with his wife-to-be, Dorathea Evers. He married her in Illinois in 1872 (source: Carl's obit), but I have not found their marriage record on Ancestry or familysearch. After they married they moved to Crawford Co., MN for a few years. They then moved to Bon Homme Co. SD in 1875, and raised 13 children on a farm there.
1) Do you know Heinrich F's father's name and how do you know that Carl R may be a brother? Were there other siblings?
2) Do you know Heinrich F's mother's name?
3) Have you found their place of residence in Germany since trying to find the family in Lutheran records over there?
Carl's obit mentions that his father immigrated a year before he did, came to Illinois, but the father's name is not mentioned nor is their any mention of a mother or the location in Illinois.
If you get this, maybe we can talk via e-mail. I am looking into leads on the Evers line.
I live in Hugo, MN.
