I believe we have a connection; my g-grandmother was Anna Helena ("Lena") Emke.Her sister, Amalia, married Max Kroeger.The information I have says that: Amalia ("Molly") Emke b. 1850Holstein, Germany m. Max KroegerJuly 1869, Germany children:Doris Adolph Arola Gus another daughter d. I don't seem to have this date, but believe is burried in Brookingham Cem, where??
I also have a copy of Lena & Amalia's father's (Hans') will.On the Petition for Administrator/Executor for that will are listed: father's name mother's (deceased) name living sibling's names and ages
I will be glad to share other information about Lena, Amalia and their parents and siblings that I obtained during a trip to Iowa a couple of years ago.I am particularly interested in learning more about their parents, where they came from in Germany and any other ancestors.
I would appreciate any information you might have and, of course, will be willing to share what I have.
