1920/Franklin Co. Missouri/Emil Foelke
« on: Saturday 05 March 05 18:34 GMT (UK) »
Hi!!
Would somebody kindly take the time to find Emil Foelke in the 1920 USA census, in Franklin County, Missouri. I found this entry whilst making a basic free search for Foelke records in the USA, but it did not give a birth year of locality, sorry.

My GG Grandfather was named Emil Foelke. Before WW2 he was an Engineer. Apparently, he left Silesia in Germany and went to the USA for a few years to help develop some kind of aircraft technology so, I'm taking any chances I can get to find info on him!! Any help of advice, exceeding a census lookup would most appreciated.

Thanks for reading!!

Ryan.

Ryan...

I found the entry in the Franklin Co, Mo. Census for 1920 you were speaking of.. there were 4 children listed with the Foelke last name..
They were listed as being born  in Missouri and were Step children to the head of household. I dont thikn this is who you were looking for..

Hi,

I'm aware that the original post is somewhat old (if not ancient), however I'd love to know if you have any information regarding the Foelke family.

My greatgreatgrandmother was Antonina Małasińska née Foelke, born in Kraków, Poland on 9th of June 1848. Her parents were Jan Foelke (Fölke/Folke/Felke depends on the spelling) and Agata Surówka. Jan Foelke was propably born in Krakow to Franciszek (Franz perhaps?) and Joanna Foelke around 1807. He had at least 9 children, 3 of them died in the infancy – Tomasz (1837–1894), Julianna (ca 1840–1876), Franciszek (1843–1886), Karol (1847–1894), Antonina (my greatgreatgrandmother, 1848–1932), Stefan (1850–1893), Aleksander (1855–1856), Władysław (1857–1857), Edward (1860–1860). My greatgreatgreatgrandfather Jan Foelke was a ropemaker and he passed the trade down to his sons.
I was wandering if there might be a at least small chance of a family connection since the Foelke surname is rather rare.
Best regards :)
