Alexander Benke (Benko) m. Elise (Elizabeth) Schmidt
Does anyone have any information about Alexander Benke of Bexar Co., TX or the Benke family (or family name) origin?
Alex Benke was born in Hungary and migrated to the U.S. during the mid'1800's from Hungary(then ruled by the Austrian Empire). After he arrived in Texas he met and married Elise (Elizabeth) Schmidt. Elise had immigrated to the U.S. from Hamburg, Germany.I do not know much more about Alexander or the origin of the Benkes.
I would welcome any information about them.
