Searching for info regarding Erick Bakke, born in Norway in 1877, who married Martha Osteraas in 1898, and they immigrated direct to Rhinelander, Onieda Co., WI in 1902. A few of their children were born under the Bakke spelling, and have been unable to determine about the remaining. Name was changed by time of marriage of oldest son Conrad in 1929 to Stefania Elich. Conrad married again in CA, and am interested in his second family.
At time of death in 1970, father spelled name Eric Backe. Having a very difficult time in tracing Eric's and Martha's history. Any help appreciated. Willing to share all knowledge of line forward.
