Bio and Links
I am a volunteer for the Garden Peninsula Historical Society. I have cemetery records for the following cemeteries: Sack Bay, Hinks, St. Peter the Fisherman, Old Garden, New Garden, and Kate's Bay. My records were last updated in the 1970's but I am able to do photo requests for the above cemeteries.

I have information on all burials prior to 1970.

Hi if you want information on the Lamkey family you should contact Brenda Tibbetts at the garden peninsula historical society. Her mother was a Lamkey. I believe she is also,on find a grave. I,found Lamkey in the census so if you can't get ahold of her contact me and I will help you. I know she has al lot more information than I do. Deb

RE: Lamkey Family
Thanks, that answers many questions for me.
I think probably John and Joanna must have lost children between the 4 she brought with her.

From what I can gather the kids are as follows:

Louise Agatha: 1861
John Herman: 1866
Helena Whilhelmina (Lena): 1870
Alphrena (Rena) 1877

Regards,
Pat

RE: Lamkey Family
So I take it Henry..john..and Frederick were probably brothers right?
Also I take it Henry was joannas second husband right?
I would wonder if rena was henrys girl with Joanna top-level
Maybe not since she was adopted out.
Young John was also known as herman right?
Thanks again!

RE: Lamkey Family
I wrote a reply and wanted to add on but I guess I lost it all.
I was wondering if you think the spelling for each cemetery was altered a bit and that "they" are all from the same family no matter the spelling?
I have tried to find Louise in census just to see how old she was but I have not been able to find her so far.Did you find her?
Do you think the Henry Lamkey in the same cemetery as John and Johanna (Mahn)Lamkey is the husband of Johanna? He was 77 when he passed.I guess the other thing I wanted to ask was John's (the son) name being Herman.
Thanks again!

RE: Lamkey Family
Wow, that is so interesting.
Did you mean to say John died in Germany instead of Henry? OR were there two Henry's?

The children left by Johanna are in my line.
I had thought as follows:

Lena (my line) 1870
Rena 1877
Louise (?)

John 1866 (killed in an accident when a tree fell on him) (this could have been Fredericks son I guess)

Am I wrong wrong wrong?
Now I wonder who Lena's father and mother are.
It could have been she was born and then both parents died, I presume in Germany.

I will never begin to say thank you enough times.
I do appreciate all the time you are spending with me! I had given up on this line, but from Lena down I know the family. I was 6 when she died so I even remember her.
In fact we live about 6 miles from the farm where she raised her children after her husband died here in Missouri.

Regards,
Pat

RE: Lamkey Family
Hello Granny,
Thank you for the reply.
I knew the family had many Johanna's in it. I am from the Johanna Mahn and not Frederick's Johanna line. So we would be cousins many times removed, LOL
I attempted to find the John you spoke of as being a brother to Frederick Jr. and also the Herman. I found a Henry but I have yet to find Frederick Sr.
I know John died first and then Johanna Mahn died in 1882. They had 4 children and I am from one of them (Lena). In the census I find a John and Johanna but they have no children and it is in 1880???? That is only 2 years before she died.
Can you help me with that mystery?

The John (age 18) that was killed by a tree falling on him in 1884 was a son of Johanna Mahn. My great grandmother had fear each time there was a wood cutting outing from that terrible accident.

I have searched for so many years... this is a real treat for me to finally know at least what Lena's last name was.She would not tell anything about herself.
Again, thank you so much for helping me.
Regards,
Pat( Coble) Sutcliffe
