My mother was Minnie Augusta Schwanke she was named after her fathers mother. Her grandfather was John Julius Schwanke born 1838 in Germany(Prussia) married to Minnie. I wonder if they were related. The date of migration approx. before 1874.

I have a Frederick Schwanke that I believe is from Stettin and who married an Ottelia Schramm -is it possible that the Frederick and August are brothers or Ottelia and Augusta are sisters???

In response to Andy Schwanke: My grandfather's name was Franz Ludwig Schwanke of Germany...Hamburg, I believe...and hemoved to the USA about 1903. I'm interested in compiling a genealogy and would appreciate hearing from you. His wife was Anna Dase...they had 11 children. I THINK he had a brother August, I need to check into that.

Did your mother have a brother Herman? Do you have a cousin Harold A. married to Gertie Tekrony? If these sound familiar, then we (actually my husband) could be cousins!! Let me know if you think there is a match.

My paternal grandmother's sister-in-law was Minnie Schwanke. She lived for many years in Missoula, Montana, and her descendents live there now.
