My great-grandfather John (1834-1902) and Fredrick were brothers.
Frederick (1842-1911) is the son of Jacob (1808-?) and Lovice Barnhart (1810-?). My great-grandfather John (1834-1902) and Fredrick were brothers, both born to Jacob & Lovice, and this is how I got into the picture.
Jacob (1808-?) is the son of Abraham Rake (1780 - 2/9/1869) and Suzanne Simion (1783 - 12/6/1862).
Abraham is the son of Johann Phillip Racke (1736-?) who changed the last name spelling from Racke to Rake.
