I am searching for info on Otto Henry Blaschke. He was born 29 July 1874 in Pommern, Germany near the Polish border.He married Anna Marie Tolzman born 14 August 1878 in Wesbogen, Germany.They married between 1894 and 1902.The story handed down in the family is Otto came to the US as a stowaway to avoid the Germany army.He landed in New York, went to Millwaukee and then on to Iowa.He had 2 half-sisters in the US when he came.
Otto's death certificate lists his parents as Carl Blaschke and Henriett Krause.
His half sisters are Bertha who married a Vandersee; and Anna who married a Hametter.
He had a third sister who married an August Potratz and remained in Germany. His parents also remained in Germany.
Any info on this family would be much appreciated! Kathi
