My great great grandfather Christopher H. V. Pankow was born in Penzin, Mecklenburg, Germany in 1829. He married Sophia Koeltzow. They had several children, but I only have information on one of them: Heinrich Freidrick Pankow (1866-1933). Heinrich maried Henrietta Peters, and lived in Hamburg, Germany for a time. He had something to do with a horse drawn streetcar company there. Heinrich, Henrietta and their sons came to the US on the ship "Amerika" which landed at Ellis Island on April 1, 1906. They came to Minnesota where they stayed with the Lornez family (relatives?) and then settled on a farm of their own. One of their sons was Herbert Heinrich Gustauv Pankow (1898-1972) my grandfather. I would be interested in any information any of you could give me about the Koeltzow family.
