I assume you are referring to Eichhorn (with 2 "h"s near Zistersdorf in the Province of Lower Austria (Niederösterreich). If so, your posting should be on the Lower Austria Board:

There are also 2 Olbersdorfs in Lower Austria, one is near Hollabrunn -- the other near Thomasberg. See:

If you require birth/marriage/death records you need to contact the respective parish directly.

Re possible living descendants: I am sending you a separate e-mail with listings from the current phone directory. See:

Seeking information on the WANKE family of Eichorn, Austria.
Leopold WANKE, son of Leopold WANKE and Veronika SCHWAB of Eichorn, married Johanna FLACH daughter of Albert FLACH of Olbersdorf, Austria who married Johana RIEDEL also of Olbersdorf.
Lepold and Johanna died in about 1879-1880 and three of their four children Lena, Edward and John came to the United States in about 1880-1881. Lena died in Sioux City, Iowa in 1968. Edward and John died in Plenty, Saskatchewan, Canada in in 1939 and 1929.
A sister Leopoldine WANKE STANZEL immigrated in 1908 and died in Plenty, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1967. She had two children Leopold STANZEL and Hedwig STANZEL Mathison.
Any information on the Austrian and Candaian families would be appreciated.

I am granddaughter of Hedwig Stanzel & Hjalmar Mathison.
Leopoldine Wanke Stanzel is my great-grandmother.
Last time I was at Plenty Cemetery there was no stone on Edward & John Wanke's graves.
My mother & I have the Mathison's back to Hans Peter Mathison in Denmark.
We have been trying to research the Henry Crooks-Lena Wanke family of Wisconsin & Iowa without much success.
We would greatly appreciate your assistance with any of the above.
