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!

I have a Henry Dahnke in my chart, born Mecklenburg 1867.
He came to Iowa and grew up in Benton Co./Iowa near Watkins.
In 1889 he married Louisa Sass.
Probably John Dahnke, born 1842 is his father?

I see this posting regarding John Dahnke is from 2002, so I don't know if you are still at this email address. My birth name is Ty Donatus Dahnke (now Benson). I am the son of Larry Dahnke, who is the son of Gerald Dahnke, son of Elmer Dahnke, son of Henry Dahnke, who is the son of John Dahnke. Great to see this post. Please feel free to contact me, as I would like to know more about my ancestry. I have a single photo with John through Larry in one shot. A 5 generation photo. Are you related? TY
