Re: Familie Minke - Rosenthal
I found this on accessible archives for PA:
"JOHN MINKE, cooper, P.O. Freedom. was born in Rosenthal, Germany, Dec. 31, 1822, a son of Jacob Minke, who departed this life in Germany. John came to America in 1847, and was married in New York to Margretha Schleiter, who was born in Rosenthal, Germany, Nov. 10, 1828, and is the daughter of John Schleiter. "
I am trying to research back to the timeframe of the American Revolution to determine what relatives may have fought for England.
