In the 1870 census in Comal county Texas, there is Heinrich Luedeke 36, wife Elisabeth 39, children Anna 10, Herman 6, Albert 2. It notes that all came from Brunswick. I was not familiar with this name as a country of origin, so had to look it up. It seems that Brunswick is a version of Braunschweig, which is in northern Germany, the same as Mecklenburg. Perhaps the census taker made a mistake on the children's place of birth. I'm not sure if this is enough information to be of help in your search, or if it is even the same people you seek.

In the 1880 census in Brazoria county Texas (not very far from Comal county):
Henry Ludicke 53 from Hanover
wife Dorah 43 Hanover
daughter Zeddie 21 born TX
Henry 17 TX
Johanna 14 TX
Albert 11 TX
John 9 TX
Addie 5 TX
Dorah 3 TX

It is hard to say if this is the same family from the 1870 census, but some of the details match. It could be that Henry remarried, and the addition of Johanna is from his new wife.

In researching a little further, the family in the 1880 census in Brazoria county Texas, is not the same one found in 1870 in Comal county Texas. It is just a coincidence, as that family is also on the 1870 census in Brazoria county. However, I can't seem to trace the family from Comal county after the 1870 census.

Hi,
thank you for your help. I think it is not the family of Johann Heinrich David from Mecklenburg village Kittendorf. this family you find out is from county Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen)in the North of Germany. It is quit difficult and I am searching for a long time. I miss also the chlld Henry born 1858 in Texas in 1870census.
Thanks again
Best regards from
Doris

The one thing I'm pretty sure of is that Heinrich the son (born in 1858) has become Henry Ruper in the 1880 census. He's 22 years old, single and working as a farm laborer. He's living in the town of Otto in Cattaraugus County in Upstate New York. He's living with the Miller family, also from Mecklenburg. I assume their name was something like Muller before it got changed, too. It's probably the Miller farm where Henry Ruper works.

Hi,
thanks for your answer. But what are the names of his parents
or do you know this birthdates? I find out just a Henry and Johannah Litke in Chicago IIllinois in 1880, both 50 years but no real birthdates. On child is born 1864 in WI and two in Il.In Wisconsin settled a lot of people who left his birthtown in Mecklenburg.Then settled to Chicago. There is also a Henry Lutke born 1858 living a a seaman. Where I find them. I think the dates are good? What do you think about?
Best regards Doris

I have Luedtke/ludtkes that settled in marathon County in Wisconsin. I am not sure if they might be of some relation. Carl Luedtke also I have seen that Chalres was somewhere in his name too. He came to the USA with his wife Minnie, and a couple of his children. The only one that I can remember off the top of my head is Julius August Albert Ludke/Luedtke.They were from Seligsdorf, Germany/Pommern/Pommerania/Prussia.
