Would anyone have any info and a Focke Rademacher and wife Mary-- they are in the 1860 Census in Petersburg, Menard Co., Illinois both born Hanover. With them are living a Peter Paden age 7 born Illinois and a John Thompson age 5 born Illinois.Then in the 1880 Census Menard Co., Ill. Focke has his name spelt Rohdemacher with wife name as Gersche (both born Hanover) John Thompson still living with them.
I am so trying to find out about these two boys... as I believe they are brothers and Peter changed his last name to his mothers maiden name. I am trying to find their birth, birth places, parents and what happened to their parents.
Would ANYONE know why these boys where living with the Rademachers????
Would appreciate and help and THANK YOU in advance, Connie Kenney
