My great-grandmother was a Hankey, b. 1852.She was born in Roxbury, Mass.Her father, b. 1822, and uncles were from the vicinity of Kutzenhausen and Surbourg in Alsace (Dept. du Bas Rhin).The Hankeys attended the (R.C.) German church here in Boston (Holy Trinity), and were german speakers.The French civil records for their births spell the name as Henke.Their naturalization records in the United States show Hankey.
