Australian Pomerenke's from Germany (West Prussia) August Pomerenke
The information that we have is that August Pomerenke was born in 1855 in Germany. He married in 1878 in Mellenten, Duetsch Krone aged 23. He married Appolonia Litfin. She was born in 1852 in Ruschendorf. August died 7th November 1935. Appolonia died 3rd May 1920 in Laidley Qld Australia. Her parents were Joseph and Maria Litfin.
August and Appolonia had 9 children that we know of
Leo, Marie (Mary) , Paul Joseph, Agnes , August Franz , Martha , Mandelina , Clem and Joseph.
We are descendants from Leo Pomerenke born 11/2/1887 married a Manthey , and they had 13 children.
We are descendants from Michael Pomerenke (my grandfather) born 27/10/1913 in Lowood Qld Australia.
If any of this info sounds familiar we would love to hear from you. Thanks Fiona Patterson.
