Heinrich and Friedrich Leweke (1803 and 1856)
I am the great-grandson of Frederick F. Leweke, born 2/20/1856 in Belle, Lippe, Germany. He came to America as an infant with his parents on the ship Johanne Wilhemine on May 21, 1856. A German correspondent told me the church lists his real name as Friedrich Christoph Ludwig Leweke. He married Eva Susan Buchner, my great-grandmother.Friedrich's parents were Heinrich Adolph Ludwig Leweke and Wilhelmine Dorothea Hellweg.
I descend through Fred and Eva's daughter, Bertha Clarissa Leweke, who married Andrew Leroy Pray (my paternal grandparents). Their eldest son, Walter Leroy Pray, married Flossie Wynema Withrow. Walter Leroy Pray and Flossie are my parents.
I havemore information if there are cousins out there.Walter Steven Pray
