I am looking for any information on the Kempke family. My Great grandmother is Antonia (Kempke) Kashuba. She lived in Filer City abt 1870 at the age of 4 Her parents names were John Kompa (Kempke) and her mother Mary. Antonia was married on Nov 25 1883 to Andrew Frank Kashuba. Antonia's siblings were Frank, Hanna (Anna), Charles, Marianna (Mary), and possibly Nellie. John Kempka worked in a sawmill and died on Dec 25, 1871. He was murdered. His wife possibly remarried. Any information on this family would be much appreciated.

I found this when searching for Joannus Kempka so thought I would send it your way.

Antonia Phelena Kempka
Marriage
Andrew Frank Sr.Kaszuba
25 Nov.1883 ,Manistee,Michigan

Andrew;B;17 Sept.1858,Posnan,Germany
d;12 June 1928,Milwaukee,Wisconsin
burial.St.Adelbert's cemetery,Milwaukee,wisconsin

Notice the spelling on the name Kaszuba(Kashuba)sounds the same spelled differntley.
When census,death or marriage records were taken during the 1800's/1900's, the person writing down information usually spelled the names as the sounded,instead of asking the correct spelling.
If you go to,www.familysearch.org(free)
type in Antonia Kempka(no middle name used)then scroll down to united states,Michigan,and scroll to marriage(do not enter a date)and click,will bring up this information including childrens names,birth dates,death dates.

Surnames: Kempke/Purgiel connection
Do you know who Constarty Purgiel's parents are? He was Mary Kempka --- Manistee, MI.

I found information on him and his wife in the census and
believe he lived with my GGG Grandfather at one time. I was
trying to connect all the Purgiel's in Manistee to my family. I'm sure they were related but not sure how. We
know there's a connection to the Posen/Alpena, MI bunch but
again we trying to find the connection .

Thanks in advance!!!
