This is Henry Lueken, brother of Mary J, Katherine Elizabeth, Cleman and Herman. We know the family came to the US prior to 1877 and settled in Ferdinand, Dubois, IN. At this time, we only know Katherine's decendants, and am hoping to find out more about the rest of the family. We know that part of the family ended up in Louisville, Jefferson, KY.
