John M. Roggenbuck in front of his Shoe Shop in Tuscumbia/Alabama (1915)
Added the lastname of Anton Goike wife Constantia Potrykus oder Potrikus. In the church book (Tuscumbia) this is written as Patrickus!! This name is from the Danzig area too.
Found as transcription of obituaries in "The Florence Times" for the years 1931-1945:
Frank Roggenbuck 1938 and Rosalia Mary Roggenbuck 1944, both Tuscumbia.
I found several hints that the Schmuck and the Goike family is also from Steegen/Danzig
Parents of Pauline Goike added census data 1910.
Bernhard was mustered in Norfolk/Virgina in 1917
Anton Goike 21/09/1833-17/05/10 --> Colbert County --> Holy Cross Cemetery
Constance Goike 23/04/1834 - 27/12/16
Added children to Thomson
Added the first letter of the first name of J.M. Roggenbucks father. Corrected his birth year to 1850 instead of 1849.
Added first names to Schmuck/Heintz
Added age of Franz and Gertrude Schmuck, also the immigration years and their origin.
In the Church Book of Konitz I found Johann and Rosalie Roggenbuck as parents to Johann Peter Roggenbuck, born 1879. See also page ro_konitz.html
Johann Roggenbuck and Rosalie Schmuck are the couple that migrate to USA in 1881. In the Hamburg passenger list in November 1881 is stated that they left Hamburg with one daughter and two sons. Johann Peter born 1879 does not appear in any US source. Probably he died as a baby in the US.
Konitz KB: Johann and Rosalie Roggenbuck living in Hennigsdorf while child Johann Peter was born in 3. Oct. 1879
Francis and his son Paul. Date unknown.
