Henry Edward Klemme, Lafayette Co., Missouri, married 1894

I'm seeking information on HENRY EDWARD KLEMME of Wellington, Lafayette County, Missouri. He married on 16 May 1894 to EMMA EASTERLA (Oesterle), born 15 March 1865 in Napoleon, Lafayette County, Missouri, died 10 Oct. 1895, in Napoleon. Emma was daughter of John Oesterle (Johann Georg Oesterle), born 17 June 1817 in Braunsfeld, Posen, Prussia, died 1 Dec. 1878 in Napoleon, Missouri, and Wilbura Elisbeth F. Fritz, born 9 Nov. 1826 in Braunsfeld, Posen, Prussia, died 8 April 1896 in Napoleon. Some progress has been made on tracing Emma Easterla's genealogy in old Posen, but her husband Henry E. Klemme is a big mystery. My wife is a descendant of their daughter CAROLINE FREDERICKA KLEMME, born 15 May 1895 in Napoleon, Missouri, died 31 Oct. 1972 in Manchester, Illinois. There is a persistent story in the family that Caroline and/or her siblings were of Native American origins -- and Emma Easterla had children (perhaps out of wedlock) before her marriage to Henry Klemme. Emma's children all bore the surname "Klemme" (some of Henry Klemme's descendants spell the name KLEMMER), including the ones born before her marriage to Henry Klemme. Old photos of Caroline's brother show him with unmistakably Native American-type complexion, facial features, and hair.
