This is the information I have on the Rabe side of my family. Herman William Rabe born 8/10/1886 in Germany is my great grandfather he married Eda Baumgartel on 2/20/1909 in Chicago ILL. They had three Children Esther, William, and Ruth. Ruth is my grandmother, she was born in Omaha Nebraska and married Gordon Perkins. Ruth lived for a time in Duluth MN, Esther married someone with the last name of Pruitt and they had 13 children to our knowledge we have two names, Beverley and Billy, the last known address was somewhere in Rosemount MN. William we have little information on. We do know he was in the military and my mother thinks she recalls the fact of him marrying. I hope this helps in some way, I am looking forward to finding out if we have a connection.
