Koepke Family Genealogy Forum
Greetings to all Koepke researchers! I have been trying to find out when my Libstaff ancestors came to Michigan, and I was able to find some documents for Frederick Liepsterp who emigrated from Hamburg to New York in 1852. In the process I have been looking through various ships' passenger lists to try to find a ship name. (My gggreat grandfather was Frederick Luebstorff)
I did find a couple of Koepkes listed on the passenger list for the ship SIR ISAAC NEWTON (Hamburg to New York, 6 Dec. [Oct.?], 1852) They are identified as CARL HEINRICH FRIDRICH KOPKE, age 27, weaver, from Neu Stelitz/M.S.n. (I believe this was meant as Mecklenburg-Schwerin); SOPHIA WILHELMINA KOPKE, age 26, weaver, Neu-Strelitz.
Are these Dundee, Michigan Koepkes??
