Family Names Familien Nahmens Welter, Nafke

I guess I found this searching for NAFKE . It is kind of rare name, and not commonly found all that much with out going out of your way. This has been sitting in Edit for awhile, and I thought maybe it should be shared.
I did find something here :

2. Elenore Luise Maria NAFKY NAFKE NAFKY or NASKE - 1861

That's all I had saved in edit. I hope it was of good for someone.

Note: I think M&M mentioned a Welter or Weller as a surname in the family History tree. So since we have Naefke in our Grote family Tree and in several other surnames in association, it was good this was called to our attention.
