Surnames: Kohnke Classification: Query Message Board URL: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/rw/Hkn.2ACIB/5.7.3 Message Board Post: I have been doing research on the Kohnke family. My grandmother was Josephine (went by Rose.) Her sister Caroline (Carrie) had two children; Marie and Frank Lechner who are now ages 91 and 84. To my knowledge,they are the only surviving children of the Kohnke siblings. I see them often. They have given me many family pictures, although we have not been able to find any of Augusta. She was born Oct 14,1849 and died of cancer Nov.10,1887 in Watertown,MN. John and Frank Kohnke settled in Ill. and I do not have a lot of information on their families yet.
