I am trying to find info on my Great Grandmother Augusta Jeske Fratzke. We too are not sure of the spelling of the last name. She lived in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota.

WHile there are a number of Jeske relatives from the clan we're searching who now live in Minnesota, ours are from the vicinity of Chaska. TO my knowledge, none are connected with your search. Sorry!

Surnames: Jeske, Maxfield, McKinney
Like Jim, I too have Jeske's in MN. In 1920, two sisters (one was born in the US, but the other came over in 1885 as an infant) at the least, the two sisters and their spouses were living in St. Paul, MN. Unlike Jim, mine are still stuck at the generation of the two sisters (of which there were more siblings unknown to me) and the older sister reportedly came from "Berlitz, Germany" as stated in the 1920 census. It's assumed that they are from somewhere in Poland. If you are aware of any siblings of yours who married Maxfield or McKinney, they might be mine.

Following is a narrative we have recived from one of Bernhardt's descendants. It appears to me that there are some errors in the narrative, but I'm sending it exactly as we have it. Perhaps, with the information you have, we can make any corrections necessary.

"Little is know of the parents of Bernhardt Rudolph Jeske. His father died and is buried in Posen, Germany. His mother Mrs. G. (Wilhemina) Jeske was born in 1834. She brought Bernhardt and his sisters and brothers to America on a ship. Bernhardt was 9 years old at that time. They settled in Brenham, Texas. Mrs. G. Jeske died in 1922.

"A few facts are known of the parents of Mathilde Melinda (Kunkel)Jeske. Her father, Gustof A. Kunkel, was born in the province of Posen, Germany on December 20, 1846. As the oldest of 8 sons of Wilhelm Kunkel. He(1) married Pauline Wilhelm on January 16, 1870, and to this couple 15 children were born, 12 sons and 3 daughters.

"Gustof Kunkel left his fatherland in December 1874 and in Januray 1875 they landed in Galveston (Texas) and libed in Brenham in Washington County for 2 years, after that they moved to Austin County. In 1907 they moved to Young County.

"Gustof A. Kunkel died on April 18, 1921 at the age of 74 years, 3 months and 29 days in the home of his youngest son, Edward, in Olney, Young county, Texas. To bereave his death wee his wife, 9 sons, 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren. Mrs. G. A. (Pauline Wilhelm) Kunkel was born April 24, 1851 amd died MAy 17, 1934.

"Bernhardt Rudolph Jeske and MAthilde Melinda Kunkel were joined in Holy MAtrimony on December 20, 1894. They celebrated their Golden Aniiversary in 1944.

Bernhardt was born on February 26, 1870 (2), in Posen, Germany and died on April 1, 1953 in Olney, Texas.

Mathilde Melinda was born on October 21, 1875 in Kenny, Texas, and died on April 1, 1953 in Olney, Texas."

This concludes the narrative.

(1) We do not know who the "he" refers to, whether this is Wilhelm Kunkel or Gustof Kunkel. We assume it was Gustof.
(2) We have a different year for the birth of Bernhardt, although the month and day are consistent. A different document indicates that Benrhardt was born in 1871, rather than 1870.

Bernhardt and his wife had twelve children: Mathilde Melinde,(12/19/1895); Eldor Rudolph, (5/19/1898); Agnes Emilie, (2/19/1900); Ewald Theodore (9/14/1901); Bertha Alvina, (8/20/1903); Margaret Selma, (4/15/1906); Hertha Othelia, (1/13/1909); Laura Augusta (1/27/1910); Arnold Otto, (2/21/1911); Oswald Bernhardt (4/16/12); Gergardt Emil, (4/4/1914); Erna Helena (11/22/1915)

My wife, Helen Ruth Jeske, is the daughter of Eldor Rudolph, who was married to Elizabeth Ida Henrietta Elwert. A son, LeRoy Harrold Jeske was also a child of Eldor and Elizabeth.

It certainly was good to hear from you. We hope we can jointly learn more of the Jeske family tree. Since the Jeske family with which we are familiar is in Texas, and we are in Oklahoma, we are naturally curious to know where you are located. Are you from one of the two sisters of Bernhardt? We know nothing of that part of the family.

We hope to hear from you soon. Our e-mail address is: dertage@msn.com.

Bernhardt was my great uncle and your wife is my 2nd cousin. You are on my family tree. Pudewitz was renamed Pobiedziska, Poland and is in the Posen (Poznan) province of Poland. Would love to communicate more with you. I have quite a bit of info from Bernardt's generation on down, but little prior. I have many family photos that I am unable to identify, but I'm pretty sure I have one of Bernhardt on a tractor. My mom always referred to him as "Uncle Ben Jeske". Look forward to hearing from you.
