Hi,
Thanks for replying .
Do you have any info on Jacob & Becke Osterloh Ramke?
Do you know if there are still a lot of Ramke's living in Vermilion Parish? My grandmother was Elvie Fletcher Fluitt, daughter of Ernest Charles & Bertha Rebecca Ramke Fletcher. The last of my family that I knew from that area was my great aunt, Dell Rageur. I am not even sure where she is buried. I was just a teenager when she died.
Thanks,
kp

Most definitely. They were my great-great grandparents. If you are interested in any info, please reply to my mailbox: PO Box 1355, Abbeville, Louisiana70511. The Ramke's are alive and well in Vermilion Parish despite the hurricane. They are dwindling, but I can give you info. I have not had time to check my genealogy to place Bertha Ramke, the name is familiar. I did not grow up here, but visited quite a bit. I also inherited the original land my Ramke branch bought when they came over to America. We did suffer damage during the hurricane, but I was blessed to have most of my very important genealogy papers in storage. Therefore, I will not be able to check it until we move back to the house. But I will try to get some info together for you via the older Ramke's. And can send whatever I have after I am settled down. I do not know Dell Rageur, but I do know some Rageur's and will talk to them also.

I'm glad to hear that you were able to save your genealogy files. I took mine with me when we evacuated for Hurricane Rita. We live in Cameron Parish. Our house had damage but were are able to live in ours as soon as the flood waters went down so we could get to it. I hope that you will soon be able to return to your home as well.

Dell Rageur was the wife of Sullie Rageur. Her full maiden name was Muriel Audell Fletcher. She was the daughter of Bertha Ramke & Ernest Fletcher and the grandaughter of Mary Ernestine Wilhelmine Wollenhaupt & John Elmer Ramke. She used to visit us a lot and even went on vacation with our family when I was a small child. She died in 1981. She had one son, John Sullie Rageur Jr. We've lost contact with this branch of the family over the years.

I have some info on the Ramke's. There was a great-grand-aunt Winnie who kept up with all of the branches of our tree when she was still living. Another "cousin" sent me some of her info. I used the relationship calculator on my family tree maker software and found that you and my mother are 3rd cousins, which makes us 3rd cousins once removed.
