I believe I am related to some of the people that you mentioned. My great-great grandfather is Johann Mahnke. His brother August was married to Johanna Maria Holdmann. His brother Christian was married to a Caroline (I don't know her maiden name). Another brother Fritz (probably Friedrich) was married to a Spiegel (don't have a first name). A sister Henrietta married a Froehlke and they had 5 children. The youngest sister was Sophia and she married a Stahl and they had 12 childten. The parents of these 6 children are Caspar and Christina Paarman Mahnke (my great-great-great grandparents. This whole family settled in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. They came from Germany in the 1850's and 1860's. Christina, 1797 - 1891, also came to Manitowoc and is buried there but I can not find any information on her husband Caspar. I assume he died before the family came to Manitowoc and is probably buried in Kittendorf. I would like to know what happened to him. Do you have any information on Caspar Mahnke?
