It may be possible that my great grandfather, Claus Menke, and Herman Menke are related since they both came from Oldenburg, Prussia. My Claus was born in 1819 which would make him just nine years difference in age. Maybe a brother or cousin. The census records of which the latest I have is 1880 doesn't show immigration dates and as you know the 1890 census was burned but he had to be here before 1850 because my grandmother, Margarethe Menke, "Maggie", was born on May 12 of that year in Wisconsin. Haven't found birth records, but this info was off her headstone. Claus married Anna Petermann and it appears they were possibly married before they left Germany; they wer both from Oldenburg
