August F. Koepke is the name that my grandfather and his sisters had in their family information.None of them are living now so I can't ask any more questions.Maybe Otto was a nickname that I wasn't aware of.I know that nicknames were popular during that time.
I would be interested in anything that you remember about Ablonda and her husband for my family genealogy. By any chance, do you have a picture of them?
I know that Great Aunt Ablonda wrote poetry and had them published a few newspapers; and maybe a book. Sure wish I had her poems for the genealogy, but have no way of finding any of them.
If you remember anything else, please e-mail me at my personal e-mail.
