I am searching for a Karl Wilkening from Iowa. I was able to discover a short story from a relative that goes like this...
"Conrad Schwake was so crippled with arthritis that it was necessary for him to be carried on boat by his nephew, Karl Wilkening who was an army deserter. Soldiers came on board calling Karl's name but he never responded, and thus was able to come to America. (We came to USA from Germany 1857.) Karl Wilkening who was mentioned earlier settled in Iowa, and a relative visited with his grandson sometime in the 1970s."
