Re: Christian Rehkopf, 1803-1883, Ger. > TN > TX
Hi there!Here's some more family info for you, if you're still out there in cyber-space...
I am decended from all the Christian Rehkopfs.The son of your original Christian Rehkopf (my great-great grandfather,) Christian Charles Rehkopf I ended up to be quite prolific in Memphis, helping run the harness business Frederick was in.He used that business, which he ran with the mayor of Memphis at that time to cover their moonshine business.My grandfather, Christian Charles Rehkopf, II was born in Memphis around 1925 and died in Atlanta in 2004.His brother, Robert Rehkopf, and sister Mary Belle still live in Memphis along with most of their families.He married Mary Louise Head of Memphis and had 4 children, Becky, Christian Charles Jr of Atlanta (my father), Robert, and Brian, also of Atlanta.
I've been to Elmwood many times, for funerals of three of the sisters of the Christian born in 1871...Catherine, Patricia, and Mary.
I'd be happy to share more with anyone interested.
