my name ist Jörg Eimer. I live in Gross-Eichen a small village in Germany.
The village belongs to the administrative community of Mücke and lies nearly
in the center of Germany.
By internet research I found a Burk-familiy on the site of "Trinity Lutheran
Church, Grant Township".
The head of the family was Conrad Burk born 06/12/1838 in `Grossen Eichen`,
fathers name is Heinrich.
The wifes name ist Friderike Burk born 07/25/1848. They have seven children:
Minnie Maria 03/22/1876, Ernst August 04/16/1874, Friedrich Heinrich
12/27/1877, Ida Anna 04/07/1880, Amanda Luise 05/31/1883, Carl Conrad 07/25/1885,
Theodor Franz 02/24/1890.
By research with our church register I have completed the family-tree of
Conrad Burk back to his great-great-great-grandfather Henrich Burgk who was born
in 1635. Beginning with the grandfather of Conrad Burk I have common
ancestors on my family tree, so there is a distant relationship with the Burk family.
Another information that I have is the foto of a gravestone from the `Iowa
Gravestone Photo Projekt`.
It shows above the name BURK, then Mother Emma 1883 - 1961 and Father
Charley 1885 - 1971.
I guess Charley Burk is Carl Conrad 07/25/1885, the son of Conrad Burk.
I am interessted to get in contact with living descendants of Conrad Burk.
Perhaps they have some informations and dokuments about the early years when
Conrad Burk immigrated and settled in Iowa.
I can provide them with the german side of their family-tree and perhaps
some more information about the part of germany where he came from.
Thank you for your help,
with best regards
