My g-grandfather Heinrich "Christoph" GROBE RIECKMANN was born 14 Sep 1837 in Linden, Hannover, Germany, illegitimate son of Maria Magdelena Grobe and Christoph "Heinrich" Rieckmann. In 1863 my ggfather married Elisabeth WOLLE in Ebstorf. They came to the US in about 1867 with their 2 children, Henry and Maria, and lived first in Will and Kankakee counties, Illinois, after which they moved to Buffalo County, Nebraska. I have a lot of info on the WOLLE family, but almost nothing on the GROBE or RIECKMANN lines. Thanks!, Mona
Would love to share information.
