I have discovered that my grandfather, John Ficke, came from Rechtebe Germany in 1888; lived in New York for 10 years; moved to Wheeler County TX where his brother Henry lived; bought a stock farm a few miles east of Wheeler. He and his wife, Harriett McBee, had 8 children. The family homeplace in Rechtebe, Bremen, Germany has been in the family since the 13th century, according to relatives still living in the area.
