*LUCK, DUKORN, WEISFLOCK*
Searching for LUCK, DUKORN,
WEISFLOCK, family members. Henry Luck
is supposed to have died in service during a war in mid 1800's.
His wife Elizabeth (Zimmermann) Luck left Virginia with her
luggage (which contained the deed to their farm) and small
children, (#?). The trunk with the farm deed was lost. The farm
was sold for back taxes, (location of farm unknown). I only know
the name of one child, William born abt 1850. Henry's father's
name is possible Wilhelm Henrich Leuck. The family is said to have
come from Bavaria, Germany. His mother was possibly Barthena.
I have a Martin Luck who married Dorthea Mamie Dukorn, this is
direct descendant to me. From here I have the family information.
If anyone has my missing link, PLEASE contact me, I will share
what I have.
