Lebeter, Leifeste, Brockman, Polk, and Olsen Families Updated January 14, 2009
About Our Family Research
We used to have Leifeste, Polk and Brockman reunions every year. Lately, just Leifeste every 5 yrs on July 4th in Mason, Texas. They came to Texas in 1800s from Germany except the Polks which showed up afterwards (distant connection to President Polk, according to relatives). My father (Olsen) left Denmark during WW2 with the Danish navy or army, then immigrated from Greenland to USA and joined the U.S. Navy. I married a Lebeter from a long line of Lebeters from Chicago, Illinois.
