I am looking for both descendants and ancestors of Ernst and Ernest Funke.The information I have is as follows:
Ernst Funke, married to Louisa Seavers (may be Beavers)was born in Germany and emigrated late in life, and died in New York.
His son Ernst (also spelled Earnest) married Katherine Erbes 1869 in Illinois.
Their children are: Benjamin John Funke 1872-1935 Henry Frederick Funke 1874-1961 Phillip Funke 1881-1945 Emma Louise Funke 1876-1951 Mary Margaret Funke (Stewart) 1876-1947 Elizabeth Anna Funke (Petry) 1880-1945 Nellie Lydia Funke 1884-1966 Frank Ernest Funke 1883-1909 Harry Funke 1889-1952 Gertrude Bertha Funke 1886-1970 Clara Edna Funke 1887-1940 Lena Katherine Funke 1892-1958 John Dee Funke 1894-1953 Arthur Funke 1897-1963
I am descended through Benjamin's line.I would love to hear from anyone with information pertaining to this family.
