Gerhard Friedrich Heinrich Reue from Quernheim No. 34, Hannover Kingdom, Germany
My 2g grandfather Gerhard Friedrich Heinrich Reue, born 31 Dec. 1833 in Quernheim No. 34, Lemförde parish, Hannover Kingdom, Germany immigrated to Austin County, Texas in Nov. 1860 with his wife, Wilhelmine Caroline Graeber, born 3 February 1831, at Oppendorf No. 58, Wehdem parish, Westfalia, Germany, and their four children. Three more children were born to them in Texas.
If you have any questions or interest in this family, please contact me. Research in the Lemförde church is difficult because most of the church records were accidentally destroyed, so I have had to rely on other sources of information. Gerhard had four other siblings that I would like to find descendants of. I believe one sister married and stayed on the farm at Quernheim 34. It is possible that the others also immigrated. Since the Reue family worldwide is so small, I would be interested in visiting with anyone researching any Reue family.
