Looking for information on Richard Rademacher and his relatives. He married Aaltje Buhr in Germany. Aaltje Buhr was born July 4, 1829 in Strackholt, Germany. They had nine children born in Germany. Harman Dirks, Amke Dirks, Meta Dirks, Gretchen Dirks, and Tillie Dirks. Three children died in Germany. Their mother gave all of them the middle name Dirks. Richard and Aaltje Rademacher emigrated to America with their five children in 1867. They located in Mernard County near Petersburg,IL. Richard Rdemacher died August 15, 1868. Maybe someone can tell me where Strackholt, Germany is located?
