Re: Iowa/Wisconsin Kluck's (Gen. VonKluck?)
Just a brief history on my Klucks. Peter Kluck b 1832 in Prussia,died 1903 in Pierce City,Missouri and married to Katharina Elizabeth Radke b 1841 in Prussia and died 1929 in Pierce City,Missouri. They immigrated to the US on the ship Hannover which left Bremem ,La Harve and arrived in New Orleans on Oct. 12,1872. Traveling with them was my grandfather Martin and his two sisters Mary Anna and Mathilde. They were in St. Louis in the 1880 census and shortly there after moved and settled in Pierce City.
Family stories all said that my grandfather was a third cousin of Gen von Kluck but I have no proof of that. Also at some time Peter was a guard for the Kasier Wilhelm before coming to the states.
I have been looking for church records from Zeppnow,Germany which is now called Sypniewo and is part of Poland.There are lots of Klucks and Radkes in that area and
time frame but I have yet to locate Peters birth or parents.
I don't know of any Klucks from Wisconsin but anything is possible in this game. I also have brieffamily line onthe General and his brothers and sisters and their parents that I can send to you if you like.
If anything sounds interesting please contact me.
