Emil Leyck born Berlin Germany 1848, a watchmaker came to the US in 1866. He married Margaretha Schmitt, daughter of John Schmitt and Eva Marie Dill. Margaretha was born in Englestat, Germany. The Leycks settled on Staten Island, Richmond Co, New York and raised their son Frederick Conrad Leyck Sr born 1874.
I beleive that Emil was the son of Karl (Carl) Leyck and Friederike Emile Knopf born 1812. Germany.
Other sibs were:
Marie Pauline Leyck born 1836 Germany
Albert August Leyck born 1838 Germany
Anna Emilie Leyck born 1840 Germany
Fredrick Wilhem Leyck born 1842 Germany
Carl Wilhem Leyck born 1844 Germany
Would like to connect and share information with any decendants of the above Leyck/Leyk 's.
Would also like to prove that Carl Leyck is indeed my Great,Great Grandfather.
