My paternal great grandmother — Rosalie Ruhnke — some records say born in Poland, some say Germany. She immigrated to USA and was married 1874 in Michigan. Her marriage notes apparently read –” Frederic Moerke, age 26 of Escanaba, born in New York State, the son of Edmud Moerke and Willhemina Mottz, married Rosalia Runka, age 19 of Escanaba, born in Poland, daughter of Bartholomew Runka and Annie Porlatsch, married on the 5th of May 1874 at St. Joseph Church.” I have not seen the actual transcription. It was sent to me by the current priest so I cannot vouch for the actual transcription. Any guidance here would be more than welcome!!
