I have maiden name for my GG-Grandmother who was born in Germany... Her name has been spelled two ways in my search.... Von Deeken and also Vendekin......I have been told this name dropped the Von and became Deeken.....
Gertrude Von Deeken was born in Germany on August 1, 1837....She married Johann Bernhard Rakers on November 06, 1858 in St. Peter's Church, Jefferson City, MO...... from Church documents it states her parents were Christopher Von Deeken/Vendekin and Mary Forck.....I know that Rakers and Forcks were in the Jefferson City area at that time however I have never seen the name Von Deeken..... There are Deekens in Jefferson City, MO and I would like to connect with them as I do feel there might be a connection....The related families were Catholic and very active in their parish and I think many still are to this day....
Would appreciate hearing from anyone that thinks they might connect.......
