I'm looking for the Henke who married Ida Belle Webber in Indiana, had one child Gus F. Henke then moved to St. Louis, Mo and had two more children, Gladys Marie and John Michael. Gus was born around 1899 and the family would have moved prior to July 1908 when my grandmother was born
Gladys was my grand-mother. I know without a doubt that she was born in the St. Louis area but cannot find any records of her birth. I found one census for California in 1930(they moved there in the 1920s). The census lists Ida, Gus, and John. I believe Ida was divorced. Gladys was not listed on the census because she was married shortly before that year. I know they were Lutheran and I tried looking there, can't find anything either.
John had a son, John Fritz Henke, and a daughter Evelyn both were in Los Angeles the last I heard.
I'm also looking for Ida.Other than the one birth record, she nearly doesn't exist.
