I am looking for siblings or ancestry of my great-grandfather, James D. Falkenstein. This is all I know of him. James D. Falkenstein was born in Strasburg, Prussia October 31, 1848. In 1849 or 1850, Mr. Falkenstein was brought by his father, C. A. ( or S. A.) Falkenstein to a ranch in Texas where he lived until fifteen years of age. At that age he began driving and herding cattle on the Texas plains in which occupation he was engaged for a number of years. His father returning to Europe in 1870 he went to Kansas where he engaged in freighting between Hayes City, Camp Supply, Dodge City and Fort Elliot, then he worked for another five years as constructor for the Santa Fe, Missouri, Pacific and Mexican Central Railroads.

Mr. Falkenstein came to Oklahoma from Colorado in 1889.

FALKENSTIEN, James / Head / White / Male / Born October 1848 / 51 years old / Married 4 years / Born Germany / Father born Germany / Mother born Germany / Year of Immigration to the United States is 1850
