I too have been looking for info. I am part of the West Coast Grunkemeier's. Family name originates from Westerkappeln, and Osnabruck area in Westphalia region of northern Germany. The name, roughly translated, means watcher by the side of a field. It is an old farming name. My lineage is from Hermann Henrich Grunkemeier, who settled in Burwell, NE, 1870's. There are a lot of Grunkemeier/eyer's from NE. There is a Grunkemeier who is from the states, now living in Germany, a third cousin of mine I found out, who is tracing our lineage in Germany, where the records are supposed to be really good. I have been interested in finding a family crest or something, and have called about 20 Grunkemeier's in Germany (my wife speaks German), but nobody seems to think one exists. Well, this is about what I know. Hope it helps, cuz!

The Burwell Grunkemeyers spelled their name with a "y." I graduated high school with Marguerite and new several of the brothers. Death records for 2-3 are on the website below.

It is true that the Burwell Grunkemeyer's are eyer, BUT, so are (were) we. The story passed in our family is that EVERYONE was eier, then some changed to eyer. Do you have any passed stories or knowledges? My grandfather WAS from Burwell, too.

Yes, the family (ours) and yours I think, had Carl, Fred, Bill, August (my great grandfather), Herman, Frieda, Minnie, Christina, Lizzie, Lena.

Do you have any records of these names?

Im sort of the family secret I guess,but my father was Marly Grunkemeyer. I found out that he passed away a few years ago, as did my half brother. I am interested in finding out a little more family history,especially my fathers mother. Ive been told by people who knew her that I look just like her.A friend of the family told me she was part Indian,and that my grandfather was German.Any help out there?

There must be someone in Nebraska who remembers why
the spelling of the name was changed and by whom. I
was under the impression it was by my Grandpa, Herman,
but not by all his brothers. Janet Grunkemeier Cook
