RE: Henry Frederick Wedekind
Hi Renay, So sorry I am so slow in answering your message.
Henry Frederick Wedekind died of Typhoid Fever. Emma
was 7 month pregnant with Henry Fredrick, My Grandfather.
Henry, the son, was about 14 or so when he finally found out that he was not the oldest child but actually the 1/2 brother to all the siblings.
My Dad, Leslie, son of young Henry, told me that his Dad was pretty messed up from finding this out.
How exciting to be so close to Graceland Cemetery where so many of the Wedekind Clan is buried.
If there is any questions you have about the tree let me know and I will see what I can help with.
One person that I seem to be stuck on is Emma Jehnke's father, Carl Jehnke. Do you know of him? He was born in Germany but from what I heard he was robbed and killed while driving a wagon in Chicago. But so far there is no Find a Grave for him.
How hard would it be for you to see if you can find him for me?
It would mean a lot to me. Carl just seems to be alone.
B 1839
D 06 Mar 1922 Chicago
I have him as dying in 1900 so it is vague
Good to find you

Hi. I've linked Otto Sieker to his parents and added the biographical information you provided. Are you related? I could transfer the memorials to you.
