Donna, I have a Frank C. Stracke b. Mar 1880 in Nebraska.He was the second husband of Irene Senteney. Irene was the first wife of my relative, Walter Hughes.
This Frank C. may be the Franz Karl Stracke found on the 1880 census, as a son ofLouis 35 born inPrussia and his wife, Anna 33 born inMichigan. Franz was their only child in 1880. However they had a large household with servants and boarders, perhaps a hotel or boarding house. The others living in the Stracke household were from a mixed background, so probably not related.
