Looking for PAPKE from Nebraska
I am searching for the origin of Fredrick Papke. Born Oct. 13, 1846 in Prussia. He settled in Rock County Nebraska in about 1884. He married a Minnie Wolf about 1870. Minnie had a son named Herman Wolf before they were married. He had 2 children before they were married. The 1880 census shows the family in Platte County Nebraska with 6 children, Fred 11 born in Prussia, Herman 9 born in Prussia, Minnie 9 born in Prussia, Eddie 8 born in New York, Charles 3 born in New York, and Edith 8 months born in Nebraska. So they had to have arrived in New York in 1872(Eddie was born in New York) and Nebraska in 1880 (Edith was born in Nebraska).My Grandfather John Papke was born in 1883 in Platte Co. so they moved to Rock Co. after 1883.
