The Franke Family History
Descendants of Bertha Franke and her sister Augusta Franke
of Fond du Lac, WI, Pittsburgh PA, and Stuttgart Germany
Family tradition states that there were 4 Franke sisters who came
to America from Germany during the 1870's and 1880's. I have been able
to discover three of these sisters so far, and a clue to the fourth.
Also with the four sisters are two brothers. I have not been able
to track down the descendants of the first brother, Bruno Franke, even
though I had an old address for his daughter Toni Hunter. I was fortunate
to find a descendant of the second brother, Paul Franke, who collected
all of thi family informamtion for me.
