I am working on the Rahe Faimly Tree, My grandfather started it and I am continuing. The only Clara I have is a Clara Josephine Rahe and she was born in the US, but I have the Ellis Island Ship logs on all the Rahes that came over. We can go back as far as Henry J Rahe Sr. If any of these name sound familiar please feel free to email me

The only Rahe I know of is Anna Rahe and Rahe Walburga. They are both sisters. Anna was born January 17,1833 in Hanover and her sister were not sure. She died October 25,1915
This is all I know of.

Kriste would like to know what you have from Elis Island.

Have the Rahe history in Indiana but have not found where they
entered the US.

There are several groups that came over from Germany. The first were Catholic and the second Lutheran. The group that came in 1850"s were Lutheran. Have the name of the small town where they all came from.

I read that you have the list of all the Rahe's that came over from Germany. Buy any chance come across Anna and Welamina Rahe. They both settled in Buffalo, New York and they both married the same person but different years, their husbands name is Jacob Schneggenburger.
Please email me if you have any information.

From what I have been able to piece together from a visit with Earl Rahe of Bluff's IL is that the Indiana Rahe's Entered the US in New Orleans. Wilhelm F. (Cristopf Fredercik Wilhelm is probably the same person) came to the US with his brother Andrew. They got separated working their way up the Missisippi - Andrew ended up in Indiana and met an untimely death according to Earl. Wilhelm ended up in New Hanover IL. Earl (now deceased) is a decendent of the Indiana Rahe's. He was 97 years old when we discussed this. I don't have and don't have time to track down documentation, but we have similar oral histories. with entering in New Orleans and losing abrother somehow. My dad tried to find imigration records in New Orleans, but they were lost for the time period in question.

Hi. My maiden name is Rahe and my dad's family is from southern Indiana. My grandparents were Laura Busse Rahe and Arthur Christen Rahe of Aurora Indiana. My dad will be 75 next week and I just stumbled on this site - I thought I could surprise him with some unknown family fact. Do you have any information about my (I think) great Rahe grandparents experience at Ellis Island? Thanks!

Sorry for being late geting back. My section of the family is from the Oldenburg area and later moved to Shelby county and Munice Indiana. The Aurora Rahe's I believe came over about twenty to Thirty years after the group that settled in Oldenburg.

I have a friend who went ot purduce and later worked at Lilly with me who has the same family name of Rahe and is from Aurora. His name is Frank William Rahe.

The family came from Germany and we traced our ancesters back to the 1600's. Theya re from Osnabruck.
