In Reply to: Where'd the dang name come from? by Karl Theodore Radtke of 308

My grandfather was Arthur Radtke,born in 16.may 1878, in Deutsch Krone, Pommern, Prussia now Poland
He told me, the name Radtke cames from Radker.
The german word for weal is "Rad".The man, who constructed a "Rad" is a "Radmacher"= waelmaker. The short form of "Radmacher" is "Radker" changed by the in Radtke
