My Great Great Grand father is August Reaka.
He married Margaret Maggie Layton in Wyondotte Co. Kansas in Oct. of 1857. His Name was originally Rieke when he left Ludenhausen, Lippe, Detmold Germany back in the 1840's, with his sister Wilhelmine Caroline Rieke. Wilhelmine settled in Dayton Ohio area and died Nov. 10 1904. Augustus's full name was Heinrich August Rieke, later Reaka. The German ie is pronounced the same as the English ea sound. The parents of Augustus and sister and brother Conrad was Heinrich Rieke and Sophie Hanke. Please respond if you are aware of these. Augustus and Maggie had seven kids; Edward, Minerva, Ida, Roudolph or Dolpgh as they called him, Mellisa, Frank B, and Albert. All from the Angnes City- Bushong Kansas area.
