Re: looking for other Warnecke's and possible links
My ggrandfather was August Warnecke,also born in Prussia in some records, others say Hanover, others say Volkmarsdorf,Oct 14,1845. He came by boat to Galveston with his parents Heinrich Warnecke and mother Fredreicka Spanneute arriving20 December 1846. August died Houston, Texas Jan 14,1870.His father Heinrich died in 1847 or 8 in Harrisburg, Tex (now part of HOuston).
There are a large number of Warneckes in Texas with various spellings.His wife Mary Ramin, born Mecklenburg-Schwern died in 1926 and still did not speak good English so it is understandable that there are various spellings and some claim they are a different line even though from the same German town.
An interesting thing about August - he died of Anthrax after skinning a cow that some boys shot on his ranch - did't waste a thing.
