I have information on a William Karge family that emigrated from Germany in 1871. They came from somewhere around Hagenow, Mecklenburg-Schwerin and moved eventually to Faribault County Minn.
William was born 12 Jan. 1838 and about 1868 he married Anna Maria Dorothea Dahling. They had one child William August H. Karge born in Germany in August of 1869.
I have more information on this family.
Sincerely,

Hello,
Yes, this is the Karge line that I have been following. This is the information that I have.
William Karge Sr. was born, probably Hagenow, Mecklenburg 12 Jan 1838. He married 1st in Germany, about 1868 to Anna Maria Dahling. I have no definate information on her. His second marriage was 13 April 1881 Faribault County Minnesota to Wilhelmina Dumke.
The son of the first marriage, Henry Karge born 19 Jan 1872 in Mecklenburg, and married 12 March 1896 (Faribault County Minn. vital records) to Rachel Weber. Rachel Weber was my great aunt on my mothers side. I know that this is sketchy information right now, but may be able to fill in with more information later. Contact me at my E-mail site Namsire@aol.com

I cannot say that I know anything specifically about Anna Maria Dorothea Dahling, but she possibly was related to my Dähling family from Brahlstorf in Vellahn parish very near to Hagenow. This family dates back to the earliest 1600s records for Vellahn, and the name shows up in various other parishes in the vicinity. My family emigrated in 1852 and 1854, settling in Goodhue County, Minnesota.

I just stumbled onto a posting from you from a few years ago. My grandfather was Heinrich (Henry) Karge, the brother of Wilhelm August Johann Heinrich Karge. From info. that I have from my cousin, Ronald Karge, Wilhelm and Henry were both from the marriage of William (Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Karge) and his 1st wife, Anna Maria Dorothea Dahling. Henry was the first child to be born in the U.S. There were three other sons born to William and 2nd wife, Wilhelmina F. Dumke, Adolf, Alfred and Herman. My father, Harland Kenneth Karge, was the youngest of the seven children of Henry and wife, Elizabeth Rachel Weber. I have additional info. from my cousin who visited Germany a few years ago to research the family. I can be reached at diverz28@cmaaccess.com Sincerely, Anita Paiz
