John Dahnke, Sr. born May 9, 1842 in Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Married Sophia Maria Dorothea Possehl in Nov. 1866. John served in German army at Ostrick and Schleswick around 1864. Came to America in 1868. Had six children: Henry, Fred, John Jr., Anna, and two more daughters whom I only have the married names and not their first names. I would like to find other relatives and try and trace the family farther back into Germany. Help is appreciated!
