My g grandfather was Charles or Carl Lickteig who came to Louiville, Ky when he was about 13 years old, with his brother Joseph.
Apparently, brother Joseph was very successful, and ran a grocery store.Many descendants of Carl and Joseph carried the name Joseph.
I have a couple of questions about Charles or Carl Lickteig, my g grandfather.
!.Lore says that he served as a Union Soldier in the Civil War.But I can not find any proof of that.
2.In his application for citizenship at age 21,here in Louisville, Ky; he staTES that he entered the United states in New Orleans at age 13, or about 1858.Joseph was with him at that event and vouched for him.
Pro:One of Charles or Carl Lickteig's g grandson's is a PHD; and works with soldier's at Fort Knox.
Con:I read about a Carl Licktieg who inbibes a little too much; and is a real con.
