Henry Christain August Oehrke and Martha Marie Monsees were married in May 1, 1857, (Almost 100 years before I was born). They had seven boys and three girls. One being Henry Louis Oehrke who married Sophia A Kurtz. They were the parent of six boy and one girl, Anna Margaret who died in 1891 the age of 8 months. The boys were August, Ed, Bill, Ernest, Ben, and Otto. Ed (is my grandfather). When Henry and Sophia Oehrke purchased a 240 acre track of land on December 10, 1894 from Sara A. Toler, widow of Jesse Toler, and her daughter and husband, John and Sara F. Bluhm. They probably had no idea that a grandson Leo would be living on that same property over a 100 years later.
