I was wondering if this might be my g-g-grandmothers surname? All her kids marriage license have different spelling from Barkfke, von Barkoef, and (Von) Brogroski or Grogroski.
I'm trying to narrow it down but have no idea where to start but thought to ask you for a starting point.
Wilhemenia b- 18 Nov 1853
Married - Lambert Wintgens
Pauline F. - 1881 married John C Friedinghaus
Adolf - 1879
Augusta - 1880 married Herman Theisan
Otto Alvis - 21 May 1883 married Julia (Flora) Emmaline Bigum
Gustave - 14 Dec 1884 married Jessie Pinkerton
Hugo I - 28 Sep 1886 married Fannie Davis
Frederika - 1890
The first ship manifest I can find is with Wilhemenia bringing the children over from Germany. It also states that their last residence was Bruckhaus.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated!!
