We are looking for any information on my wife's family name of MINKE. We found this surname in the 1900 Daviess County Missouri Census. Herman Minke(1840-1908)arrived in America from Germany in 1878. He brought with him his wife Fredrika (Barton) Minke (1844-1900) and son Herman F. Minke (1878-1961). Sometime after the 1900 Census they changed the last name to MIKES. Any help would be great.
