Henke in Alabama

  of 281

My g-g-grandfather was John Bernard Henke; wife was Thecla Dierkes/Dirckes. Son Albert Bernard, or Albert John Bernard, b. 1856 Covington, KY. Godparents: Bernard Gerhard Henke, Elizabeth Mittendorf.

This family lived in Tuscumbia, Colbert Co, AL. Son "Ben" Henke m. Hannah Wilson. Several infants died; Lucy and Elizabeth survived. Hannah died 1901; Ben moved to Phoenix , Az and died 1940. Both Lucy and Elizabeth lived out their lives in Phoenix. Lucy married Charles Peter Gass of Cullman and Tuscumbia, AL and Chattanooga, TN.

Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated. Who were the parents or siblings of John Bernard Henke and Thecla Dierkes?? When did they leave Germany? Etc.
