I am researching Dora Becker (b1838/d1911) m to Fred Becker (b1830/d1913)in 1855 in Lafayette county and both died in this county as well. I am having trouble determining her maiden name. Death cert lists it as Dedike. I found a Dedica family in the 1850 census that is most likely her. However, I think both of these may be misspellings of the name. Any information or ideas on what the likely last name could be would be much appreciated.
I am also looking for information on her mother's maiden name listed as Masenbriuk (two dots over the u) on the death cert.
Thank you in advance for any replies!
