Looking for parentage and siblings of my gg grandfather, Henry C. GEHRKE, born 1844 in Germany (location unknown). I believe his father's name was also Henry (Heinrich). Henry married Mary CARR about 1870 in Chicago, Illinois. They moved to Whiting, Indiana about 1885. Henry died Jan 15, 1911 in Whiting. Children include Edward, Amelia, Ama, Ella, Charles, William, Lillian, Agnes, George, Susan, Myrtle and John.

Hi, Chuck. My husband had a cousin named Richard Gehrke who married Theresa and had children named Jerry, Gary, Laverne, and Randy and maybe one more. I don't know if they lived in Whiting, but they did live in Highland. Richard had a sister named Joy Adelle Gehrke who married a Robert Thompson/Thomas and lived in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Let me know if they may be related to your Gehrke's. Theresa lives in Michigan now.

Hi, Chuck. Thanks for the note. I'm not sure of the time frame. My father-in-law and my mother-in-law were born in 1918 and most of the cousins I know are in their 60's and 70's, maybe older. I will contact a cousin, Jim Graska, this weekend for more details on the family. And I'll try to get more info from my mother-in-law. Her cousin was Richard Gehrke. His dad, Arthur, was my mother-in-law's mother's half-brother. My mother-in-law is Marion TROYER TRINKLE. Her parents were Victor and Frieda Sieloff TROYER. I have been working on my ancestry and just recently became interested in my husband's family.

Hi Linda! I'm not sure if we have a connection. What time frame are we talking about. None of the names you provided are familiar but that's not surprising since I have very little on Henry's descendants other than my own line. I am a great grandson of Lillian GEHRKE who married Evan LEWIS 23 APR 1904 in Chicago, IL. Lillian and Evan settled in Hammond.

Kevin: Just beginning to research my family. I am your mother's cousin. Your great grandmother was my grandmother Wilhelmina Sielaff Gehrke (nee Grunewald). If you are doing research, I would be glad to share any info I have.

Hi, Vivian. How is your research going? This is Robert Trinkle's wife, Linda. Drop me a note with your e-mail address so we can keep in touch! Mom is doing well as can be expected. Give her a call sometime! Linda

Sorry, cannot find any relationship to my family. Wilhelmina's second marriage to Herman Gehrke had one son-Arthur- born 1907. Herman and his first wife, Ernestine, had 6 children. Annie, Edith, William, Herman, Gustav and Elsie. This information from the 1900 Lake County IN, North Township Census. Have you tried contacting the cemetery for more information? Meta could have been the wife of one of Herman's children but I have never studied this family. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.

Sincerely,
Vivian

Pommern Germany?? I have marriage record for Herman Greinke and Theresa Gehrke, Du Page,IL 1887. Does anyone know where Landao or Rabenhorst, Pommern Germany are located today? That is what they listed as place of birth-so these town names are from about 1850.
