About Our Family Research

My Grandmother Wilhelmena Rosetta Lamke-Thomas sent me her Genealogy & History of the Lamke-Lemke Family in the Russell, Kansas area. My Great Gandfather was William Frederick Lamke born in Berlin, Germany. He moved out to Russell, Kansas in April 19, 1871. Back then Russell was called Fossil Station.When my Grandfather got to Fossil Station (Russell) the railroad depot was just an old box car. The U.S. government gave each member of the Colony a homestead of 160 acres around Russell.
