Genealogy Gold - and Family History about Grote, Naefke, Meyer Family Additions




Hello;

I Have more Family History info for you on the Grote family related to me by Mark Kuhlmann.


There are 2 more siblings of Adele Grote Naefke Meyer. Frank Grote - Born Nov 1893 in Farnhamville, Iowa - Died and buried there in 1954. Then the youngest Grote - Paul Grote - born Feb 1895 in Randolph, Arkansas. Paul Grote's Canadian Immagrtion Papers dated 24 Feb 1924 went to Red Deer, Canada. From there he went on to Alaska to find his brother Carl ( went to Canada not long after their moving to Arkansas). After communicating with my brother Marvin Kuhlman, Marvin told me while he was stationed in Alaska with the U.S. Army as a Dentist ( late 1940's ), he tried to find Paul Grote, since they were related,............. Marvin said Paul had a gold claim and ............ the search for Paul Grote has stopped there. If your interested, Emma Grote married Frank Daniel Wenck of Glidden, Iowa. I have a pic of my parents ( Elmer and Amanda Kuhlman ) with the Wenck's on their farm in Glidden, Iowa. I've probably forgotten to add somethig but if and or when I remember, I'll send you something.

That information above is the email letter received this last December from Mark Kuhlmann about Grote, Naefke, and Ahrens. So, I will make some necessary corrections in my previous post. I will add on his information to the little that I have written here. I know, I know, I need to get busy and add more from clippings and notes.

Remember - Adele Grote also married William Meyer.

If you relatives and readers have any questions I should post to him, let me know. I certainly take my time in thinking of question I should be asking. So I can use all the help I can get, as they say.

Psst. psst. - I watch the Gold rush show religiously on the Discovery channel. I have been wondering where abouts the gold claim in Alaska could be for Paul Grote. I'll have to see if anything is shown on the census.
Just me Jo.
