I am a descendant of 1.Baltasar Erker (1779-1843);2. Ignatius Erker (1835-1914) & Elisabeth Seifert; 3. Vincent Erker (1882-1945) & Odelia Wagner. Home to these decendants was Krasna, Bessarabia, until Vincent & Odelia moved in 1910. Have been researching first & second generations. I would be very interested in communicating with other descendants of Baltasar Erker whether it be stories, pictures, or information. audrey_406@hotmail.com

Hello Audrey,

My name is Melissa Erker and My 2nd great grandfather was Martin Karl Erker born 1857. However I'm having a little difficulties pin pointing his parents and siblings. i have a full list of all the Erkers from Krasna, Russia. He may be an illegitimate child from Baltasar Erker or one of his children.

Hello Audrey,

i have determined that Baltasar Erker is my 4th great grandfather. I have been unable to find information on his parents. Do you have any information?

Melissa,
All I have for Baltasar Erker is that he was born about 1779 and died 1843 Krasna, Bessarabia (now part of Ukraine). I don't have any info about his parents. He was likely one of the first settlers of Krasna. So he was born elsewhere. Is of German descent. He was married first to Anna Maria, had 1 child Kunigunda born 1816; then to Anna Maria Louisa Damm whom he had 8 children. 1Louisa born 1828; 2Karl born 1831; 3Vincent born 1833; 4&5 Andreas and Ignatius born 1835; 6 Philipp born1838; 7Friedrich born 1840; and 8Adam born 1842.

Melissa,
I have traced Family tree information on Baltasar's sons Andreas born 1835, Ignatius born 1835 (my tree) and Philipp born 1838. Baltasar and Anna Maria Louisa Damm's 8 children were born and died in Krasna. I've checked these 3 trees and haven't found a trace directly from Martin Karl Erker to Baltasar. It could be that he is a decendant of one of Baltasar's other sons.

I have found that you have the connection to Baltasar in another way. 1. Baltasar, 2.son Andreas born 1835; 3 Andreas' son Phillip, married to Elizabeth Hermann; 4 Phillip and Elizabeth's daughter Josephine Erker married Michael Erker born 1895 Krasna. Michael Erker is the son of Martin Karl Erker (born May 20, 1857, died Nov 11, 1918) and Justina Colestina Nagel.

I'll check further and see if I can find anything more for you.
