Searching for any information on Martin Torge and Martha Klockow of Germany/aka Prussia at times.
I am descended from their daughter Dorthea Louise (Luise) Torge born in January 1767 in Lichterfelde, Prussia. She married Gottlieb Blankenburg on Nov 13, 1788 and I know that they had at least 4 children that I've been able to locate. They would be Wilheim Frederick, Christian Friedrich, Marie Louis and Gottlieb Friedrick.
Both Dorothea L and Gottlieb died in Lichterfeld, Prussia
she died in Sept 1834 and he died in May 1831
Their Son, Wilheim Frederick also married a Torge. Wilheim was born 1802 in Licterfelde, Prussia and he married Dorothea Caroline Friedrickee Torge who was born Sept 9 1812 in Lichterfelde, Prussia.They married in Feb 1831. They came to the US in 1866 with their children.Aboard the Weser Jun 17 1767 from Bremen Germany. They had a total of 9 children.
We know that Dorothea Caroline's father was Fredrick Wilhelm Torge.
If anyone has any information on the Torge/Klockow line or more information on Dorothea Caroline Torge and her parents I would love to hear from you.
