Your mail leaves me a bit confused as to what relations and name
combinations you have established and what you assume.
I have several Spik, a few Norelius and many Stake who emigrated but I can't
pin them down from your data.
Ståke and Stäke sound less familiar (but not impossible) than Stake which is
not too uncommon in Sweden
Spik means nail and the last "h" is just a decoration to make the name look
a bit more fancy.
Spik is common in the middle part of Sweden (the iron region) sine there
were many smithies manufacturing nails (spik) - in the early days made
one-by-one by hand.
