My grandfather,Henry Frederick Paepke came to Toledo,
Ohio. Not sure when. But he married Augusta Semler
and they had my father, Henry Fredercik Geroge, and two
daughters, Elsie and Wilheminnie. We were the only
Paepke's in Toledo, although there were some
Papke's. They weren't related.
Recently, I saw someone in Toledo researching
the Paepke name. I emailed him but haven't heard back.
So far I ahvn'et done much with the Paepke name.
I'm working on my mother's side of the family.
According to my aunt, now deceased, my grandfather
came from Germany.
