Re: Wecker Family of Kansas
Wecker family of Kansas.
I have Henry L. Wecker was born June, 1862 La Salle County, Illinois, USA . He married Isabelle Bolz April 24, 1895 in Kansas, USA. She was born March 1875 in Kansas, USA.
I only have info on 2 of their children:
Steven Francis Wecker B. May 20, 1903 Olpe, Lyon County, Kansas.Was still in Olpe in Sept. 27, 1938 Source: Social Security Application.
Edward Joseph Wecker born. January 12, 1916 Olpe, Lyon, KS and Edward was still in Olpe Sept 23, 1938. Source. Social Security Application.
Henry L. Wecker is the third son of Johann Wilhelm Friedrich Wecker, went by Frederick born Feb. 14, 1819 in Potzwenden, Hanover, Germany and died bef. 1880 USA. He married Henrietta Nermeke August 23, 1850 in La Salle County, Illinois. Henrietta was born abt 1830 in Hannover, Germany.
Frederick and his father, August and 3 brothers, Augustus, Charles and Henry emmigrated to America on the 17 th. day of May, 1850 on the ship; Brig Ella from Bremen to New York. From there, they went to Peru, La Salle County and August, the Patriarch took up homesteading there. Some of the Weckers moved to Kansas in 1879 such as my grandpa Charles.
I am a descendant of Charles Wecker.My great grandfather.Charles's son was my grandfather Jester Edward Wecker and Maggie Brunnenmeyer who immigrated from Kansas to Manitoba and for some reason went by Wicker instead of Wecker. But my research did indeed prove that originally our name was Wecker. I do have a posting but never got any responses, so I was just checking to see what's new if anything. Hope this helps you.
