    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.
