Detlef Henke (Hanke)
Posted by: Douglas P. Hanke Date: September 30, 1998 at 12:55:08
  of 282

My grandfather was Detlef Henke or Hanke. He was b 1859 in Germany (Hamburg ?) He emigrated to America in 1884. He m in 1885 in NY to Amanda Peters who was b 1867 also in Germany. I found Amanda on the passenger list as having sailed on the "Hammonia" from Hamburg and Havre to NY 11/1884 which also indicated she came from the Prussia region in Northern Germany, but I haven't found Detlef's records and am stuck. Anyone have any info on this family? You can check out my Henke/Hanke info at my web site at: or
Thanks. Take care.
