My Great Grandfather Edward Mechelke was from the Twin Cities area and lived in a small town called Outing, MN at the time of his death in the late 70's. He is survived by his son Glenn Mechelke of Outing, MN who married Patricia Talent and they had 3 daughters Judith, Barbara and Kimberly. So Mechelke name on that portion of the tree came to a stop after all 3 of the daughters were married. Judith is my mother. I would be very interested in hearing from you if there is a connection. Thanks Tim Seidel

Ed Mechelke was my grandfather, Otto Mechelke's brother. As a child we went to the resort, Birch Bay Lodge in Outing. I last saw Alice Mechelke a couple of years before her death.
I too am from the cities and have lived in Akeley, Mn. for the last 17 years.
I watched your Mother and Barb paddle a canoe across the bay on Lake Washburn and they were almost too young to walk, at least it seemed like it at the time.
I'd be happy to share any info I have.

Hi,I have an August in my family tree, he would be my great-grandfather's brother. My great-grandfather Ernst Mechelke, died in 1948 and was in his 70's, I think. The August in our family tree worked in or owned a creamery in Wisconsin. Does any of this sound familiar? I have some info and you certainly are welcome to what I have. Bonnie
