We were researching my wife's family, MIKES, and found in the 1900 Daviess County Census that their name was listed as MINKE. We had been told by those still living that they had changed their name. We are looking for information on Herman (1840-1908) and Fredrika Barton (1844-1900) MIKES/MINKE. We also know that they arrived in America from Germany in 1878 with a son, Herman F. MIKES/MINKE (1877-1961). Any help or information would be great.
