My paternal grandfather, August Rieck, resided in Burlingame, Kansas and is buried there. Unfortunately I don't know too much about my dad's side of the family. I do know that August Rieck's wife's name was Mary Dunn, and that she passed away sometime in the 40's. He then married a lady by the name of Carrie. I was told that the family was poor and that August worked in the coal mines and that the family moved around a lot. I really don't know exactly where August was from originally. My father, Howard Rieck, as well as his brothers, Leonard Rieck and Carl Rieck, and two sisters, Lillian Rieck and Ruth Rieck, also resided in Burlingame, Kansas. There was a third sister, Irene Rieck, who was killed at an early age in an automobile accident. Unfortunately, I never have heard the name William or Emma in connection with the August Rieck family, but as I said, I don't have a great deal of knowledge of the family.
