Re: Christian & Maria Speck in Nebraska
Juergen 'Christian' Speck born 13 July 1843 was the son of Jochim Friedrich Speck and Ida Sophia née Brauer.
Christian arrived in NY on the ship Allemannia 26 Mar 1868.
With him was his wife Maria and son Joachim.
Joachim must of died. In 1870, Marie was a widow and had a son, Christian John Speck. The George mentioned in another reply was not his son. We think George & Henry are brothers to Christian.
We are researching the family. [email protected] or [email protected] (American/Schleswig-Holstein Heritage Society)
