Iowa / Illinois Finkes from Hannover, Germany

Aloha everyone,

I'm doing a little family research, and am currently working on my maternal grandfather, Henry John Finke, who was born in Iowa in 1888. His father was Dietrich Frederich Heinrich Wilhelm Finke (aka William), born in Hannover, Germany on June 5, 1859. William arrived in the US on June 3, 1876.

William married Caroline Werner (born June 6, 1864, also in Hannover), who arrived in the US on July 17, 1880. They lived on a farm in Buena Vista, Iowa until moving to Illinois around 1900. William & Carrie Finke had 7 children: Nellie, Henry, Bertha, Lillian, Rose, William and Emma.

If any of you are related (well, we're all related if we share the name, aren't we?), I'd love to hear from you.
