I am looking for any information that may be out there regarding my great grandfather August Henke.
According to the 1920 Adams County, CO Census, August was a German railroad laborer who had emigrated from Posen in 1906 at about the age of 16, and was naturalized in 1913. He was 30 years old when the census was taken, so his birthdate was somewhere around 1889 and 1890.
He and his wife, Emma Bott Henke, died of influenza days after the census was taken.Their children, Augusta Katherine, Elsie, and Walter went to live with Emma's sister Louise Stock and her husband Charles. One other son, Karl Frederick, had died several years earlier.
Two of the children are still living, but can not remember any aunts or uncles in the Colorado area.
I would most like to know if August had siblings, who he traveled to America with, and where in Posen (Poland) he was from, but any information whatsoever will be welcomed.
