Sue: I have dug further into my research.
Found my Ideker's came from Hanover, Germany.
Have trace back to a Johann Heinrich Ideker
b. Mar 1, 1719 & d. Nov. 1, 1784, Hanover,
Germany. He m. Catherine Maria Niemeier b.
Feb 25, 1734 & d. Apr. 3, 1800 Hanover,
Germany. I have all the generation from then
on that lead up to my grandmother Amanda
(Ideker) Howe; thanks to a cousin who was
stationed in Germany in the U.S. Army. He
got all the info from the church records
in Hanover. If this would help would be
glad to share them with you.
