Looking for information on Minnie Raap-Dilcherd (b. early-mid 19th century)

I have very little information on Minne Dilcherd. I only learned of her existence when I discovered her brother, John Henry Raap Sr.ís name on a website (* and contacted the webmaster. She provided me with the information that she had, most of it I knew, but some of it was new, including the existence of his sister.

How to find out more about her? Not knowing where or how to look has kept me from learning more. What I do know is that she is the daughter of Ernst Raap (1802-1867) and Catharina Cords (1818-1878), but I donít know if she was their oldest child or not. I presume that she cam she came with them and her brother (J. H. Raap 1840-1897) to America from Germany. So she was probably born in the 1830s or 1840s. She may or may not have stayed in Chicago with her family, and I do not know what became of her.

Any help, clues, or information you can provide me with would be much appreciated. :)
