Newly discovered church document information shows that Johann David Rawe was born in Prussia, Pommern, in the Ball/Rehwinkel area 4 Dec 1847. His parents were Johan David Rawe b. abt 1816, and Dorothea Luisa Bork b. 20 Apr 1823. Dorothea Luisa Bork's parents were Philipp Bork b. abt 1784 & Dorothea Sophia Succows. I would love to hear from anyone also researching this family.
