I was wondering if you have any other Oehlke information? My Great Great Grandfather is burried Carl F. Oelke born in Germany and he married a Louisa Wilhelmenia (?). Carls father is supposed to be a Wilhelm and I would assume Oehlke, however Carl son (Herman) changed his name to Oelke after Carl died in 1870 and his mother was not around, then he one brother and one sister changed their names to Elke at some time. We have been told they are from Allis Lorraine Prussia area (at least someone is) and possibly Louisa Wilhelmenia was a Wolffs. Herman Julius was born in Germany or Allis Lorraine Prussia possibly in December of 1860 and Carl F Oehlke was born in 1832 from their Graves at the Moravian Cemetary in Chaska MN where they settled around 1865 after coming to MN from Michigan. Herman or his father had a sick brother while they were in Michigan who had to go back to Germany/Prussia around the 1860's. This has been a dead end for my connections to them for some reason. I would assume they were Moravain/Lutheran in Germany Prussia, however can't find the connect to lead me anywhere. Do you have anything with those names?
