Information about August Teske m. Pauline
Hinz (Hintz,etc.) both buried in Lakeview
Cemetery, South Haven, Van Buren Co., MI
A couple of years ago I received a invitation to reunion of the Teskes around South Haven. They do have an annual reunion. My Teskes come from the NE Wisconsin area
We are Teske's from Iowa. We are also have a reunion on August 1 of this year. Would love for you to come. It would be great to hook up all the Teske's or at least see if they are related. My Teske's settled in Eldora, IA, Hardin Co. from Germany and most stayed. Please stay in contact. Let the Teske's in South Haven know there is another bunch of us out here. SMT
Esther Dorothea Reusch m. William H. Teske
(South Haven, MI).
Parents of Esther Dorothea Reusch were:
Henry August Reusch of Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania
Lena Lau of Elkport, Clayton Co. Iowa
They married in Volga Township, Clayton Co.
If my information is correct.
My name is Kenneth Teske I currently reside in Oklahoma and am the son of James Julius Teske Jr. My Grandfather is the senior and my great grandfather was named Julius Teske. I have been wondering if there were anyone out there that I was related to. I have always wanted to know where did my last name come from and where my ancestors came from. Help?
I suspect a brother of my GGrandfather, Albert
Teske, moved to Minn. from north central Kansas
in late 1800's but I don't know where. Albert
was born in 1854 and apparently immegrated with
his parents in 1869 alone (from ship records)
He also had half-brothers Herman b.1869, Otto
(b.1874) and half-sister Minnie(b.1870).
Hope we connect.
I am currently doing family tree search for Teske's
from Germany. The oldest person is Otto probably around 1830's or
so, but really have no idea. So far we have sons Henry b. (1854),
Reinhold b.(1881), and Herman, Sr. b. (?) Otto apparently lived in
a small village near Berlin (Tictnitz)?? with family. My side is
Henry whom I have descendents on down. Reinhold descendents also
some to Family Reunion and I have them, also Herman Jr.'s. We
assume that there were other brothers and sister but can not find
the connection and all of sons and daughters have passed away. Have
Not heard of Julius if we can get more info, maybe we can connect.
Just got an E-mail from Craig Teske, (see posting). It is possible
we are all connected. Please e-mail if you have any further info
and keep in touch so we can share what we do have. SMT
Craig! I also hope we can make a connection. The
info I know for sure is Otto is the father of Henry (1854),
Reinhold (?), Herman,Sr (?), only because we have a family
reunion in August of each year and these three have family that
show up. We are sure there must be other brothers and sisters
of those three but no one left alive to fill us in. I would love it
if Albert turned out to be related. Herman Sr, had children Herman
Jr. (1902), Minnie, Otto, Raymond, Louis, Eddie, Bess, Louise, and Grace.
Not much known about them but names seem to coincide with yours, but no
Albert. Date-wise he would seem to be in the same generation, possibly
a cousin or even a brother although birthdate year is same as Henry.
(Not impossible) Nothing is known about parents of these three but
is doubtful they immigrated. There still is probably a connection and
we need to explore it. Let me know if you have any other info and I will
do the same as I continue my search. Happy Hunting!!! SMT
I am the daughter of Alta Louise Winters and Theodore Irving Teske, II. My dad's family was from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but I know very little about his background since he was orphaned at 15 and enlisted in the army shortly thereafter. I think he had a sister who died at an early age. His mother may have divorced his father.
My great-grandfather was Julius Teske, who was born in Posen, Germany in 1850. In 1868 he came to the United States, settling first in Watertown, WI, then in the Plainview, MN area, where he married Augusta Wegener. They had 12 surviving children: Albert, Fred, William, Julius, Cora, Dan, Rena, Hilda, Emilia, Laura, Rudolph, and Herman (my grandfather). In 1909 he, his wife,and the 7 youngest children moved to Oklahoma in hopes that the climate would improve his asthmatic condition. His obituary mentions that he had two sisters, one in Washington and one in Wisconsin, but they are not named. I'd be interested in corresponding with anyone with connections to this line. Please reply by e-mail. Thanks.
