    I was wondering if anyone may be researching this family?

    Heinrich/Endrik Jons or Henry John Rupkalwis/Rupkalvis

    Born: 6 Apr 1838 Heydekrug Kreis, East Prussia

    Born: 23 mar 1848 East Prussia

    Died 22 Nov 1905 Minneapolis

    Father: Michael Polkies/Palkies

    Johann R. Rupkalwis/Rupkalvis

    Notes: Catharine was living in Szibben, Heydekrug, East Prussia before her immigration in 1898. She was a niece of John's father, Heinrich Rupkalwis. John and his parents immigrated in 1890. Anna Polkies had a sister Erdmuth Polkies born 8 Nov 1849 in Szibben and died 6 Nov 1926 in MInneapolis, who married Gotfried Haslach.

    There are two other names that I have found that I believe may be a niece and nephew of Heinrich.
