We are also from The Robert J Sticken's family. The information I have is that Johann(John) Sticken (Robert's father) and his 2 brothers stowed away on a ship to America. The brothers then went their own ways never to see or talk again. John moved to Illinois first before he moved to Iowa. Could they be related? I could share some of the info I have maybe we can connect the 2 families. Where did Sibert live before he came to the United States?
