My husband's g grandfather, Bernhard Streck came to Covington, Kentucky in 1866. He was born in 1845 in Aspich/Ottersweier, Badan, Germany. He had a brother Leopold who also immigrated to the US in 1871. Their father was Franz Anton Streck and mother was Elizabeth Hess. They lived in Illinois for a time as they're in the census there. They eventually came to Ida County, Iowa. Bernhard's father was married twice and his first wife was Veronika Reck. Their children were Franz Anton, Joseph, Aloysius, Karl, Baslius, Valentin, Benedikt, & Stephanus. Leopold had a son whom he named Leo Isidor, so there must be a connection somewhere.
