Seeking information on this family, perhaps other Henke families in this area of the U.S. can establish links. JOHN BERNARD HENKE was supposedly b. Germany, c. 1825. Died 9 December 1898, Tuscumbia, Colbert, AL. Wife THECLA DIERKES/DIRCKES was supposedly b. Germany, c. 1823; d. August 1905, Tuscumbia.

Son (Albert) (John) Bernard Henke b. 30 Sept. 1856. Baptised Mother of God Church (Roman Catholic), Covington, KY. Godparents: BERNARD GERHARD HENKE and ELIZABETH MITTENDORF. In 1937 letter Ben says he was b. " Covington--in a district then called Lewisburg or West Covington..".

Ben was a farmer in AL; for a short time owned a grocery in Paducah, KY (1890s?). Ben Henke m. Hannah Wilson, b. 21 Apr. 1859, d. 23 May 1901, Tuscumbia. Ben Henke d. 11 March 1940 Phoenix, Maricopa, AZ. Ben Henke sibling survivors listed as Mrs. Kate (Catherine) Storrie, and Mrs. Anna Maria (Mary) Goike. Other Henke names seen in Northern Alabama church records: Anthony H., Anna, Anton/Anson, Anna Maria Adelaide, Father Henry Henke, etc. Relationships not known.

Any help in establishing links would be very much appreciated!
