Lena Noeker Descendants: Fred Anna in NY/ Daniel in MI

Hi Adrienne,

My grandmother Helen (Lena Noeker) Hart Robare had an envelope from an Anna Noeker who lived in Maspeth, NY (circa 1930?) and a laminated obituary for your GGF Frederick Noeker in her keepsakes. This seem to indicate a real tie between our families.

I don't have any Noeker family pictures besides that of my grandmother from about age 15 and up, but I do have a dozen letters from the 1920's and 30's from family and friends. (By the way, I found your terrific Noeker images on the web and I think Helen does bear a resemblance to Fred.)

In the 1920's-1930's, Helen(Lena) received letters from:
Mrs. Anna Noeker at 54.05 71st Street in Maspeth(sp?), NY.
Daniel Noeker at 408 Felch Street in Ann Arbor, MI (signed Mary and Dan)
Frieda Siehmann at 340 Bainbridge Street Brooklyn, NY and 53 W Church Street
Bethlehem, PA later.

Daniel Noeker from Michigan may have been Helen's brother, since I found him and his wife Mary listed as "Uncle and Aunt" in the baby book for my mother, Lois Jean Robare.

My grandmother told me very little about her childhood. (Lena Wagner is a name my mother remebered. Possibly my GGM?) Her family was struggling in NYC and the children were sent to relatives sometime in the early 1900's. In her case, an aunt (not sure of name or specific relationship) took her to western New York to live on the Hart's farm. Her brothers went somewhere else. In 1917, she was legally adopted by Minnie Coveney Hart and Henry Hart of Sherman, NY. At this time both of her parents were deceased as recorded by Surrogate Court in Mayville, Chautauqua County, New York (Misc. Vol. 10, p. 397). Minnie lived with my grandparents after her husband died.

Helen married Philip Joseph Robare in Lakewood, Ohio in 1930. They had 3 children: my mother Lois Jean, Philip, and June Carole. My uncle lives in Portland, OR and my aunt in Baraboo, WI. They both had 3 children each.
