Gottfried and Fred Holstein/Holstine: Galka, Russia -> Kansas
I'm trying to find descendents of Gottfried and Mary Holstein from Marion County, Kansas. Gottfried (b. 1873 in Galka Russia; d. 1958 in Marion County, Kansas). Mary/Maria Katherina (b. 1879 in Russia - probably Galka as well; d. 1949 in Marion County, Kansas).
They had 3 sons all born in Galka Russia: Gottfried "Godfrey" Henry (b. 1902, d. 1959); Friedrich "Fred" (b. 1904, d. 1953) had a name spelling change to Holstine; and Alexander Holstein (b. 1907, d. 1910 shortly after arriving in America).
Fred married Edna (b. 1906 Kansas, d. 1964 Kansas) sometime in the 1920's.
I believe the oldest Gottfried was the son of a Friedrich Holstein (b. 1841 in Galka, Russia) and half-brother of my grandfather.
Gottfried also had several sisters, but I have no idea what happened to them.
