Re: Christian Rehkopf, 1803-1883, Ger. > TN > TX
I would like to make a correction to my first message, concerning Ernest Rehkopf of Paducah, McCracken, Kentucky.Recently, I have received information from another researcher which indicates that this Ernst / Ernest Rehkopf was not the son of Christian and Caroline Rehkopf of Memphis, Tennessee.He may have been a son of Christian Rehkopf's brother, Heinrich Andreas Rehkopf, and his second wife, Engel Louisa Kirleis, of Edesheim, Kingdom of Hannover, Germany.
The oldest child of Christian and Caroline Rehkopf was Justus Heinrich Andreas Ernst Rehkopf, born 3 July 1826 in Edesheim.While he probably immigrated to the U. S. in the 1850's with the rest of his family, I have been unable to find any U. S. records for him at this time.
I apologize for my error, and hope that it hasn't inconvenienced anyone.
