Note: N123 Info obtained from the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild (ISTG) shows Agnes Rathke (then 19 years old) travelled to America with a Henrietta Rathke (age 54) and Anna Rathke (age 8 yrs 6 mos) on the S.S. Donau in steerage. They were taken on as passengers at Bremen, Germany and listed as from Germany (Prussia). They travelled on the S.S. Donau (3300 ton steamer) to the Port of New York, arriving on April 29, 1878. The 1910 U.S. Census listed her immigration year as 1879, perhaps an approximation.
I am uncertain as to her relationship to the travelling companions or when she met and married Albert Kisserow, but their first child was born in 1884, 6 years after her arrival.
The name has also been seen spelled "Radke". ________________________________
My Aunt Minerva DeValska Crossley had a story about her in response to my 1990’s family questionnaires (as follows):
“I remember Aunt Lorraine taking care of Grandma. She fished for trout in brook and cooked them for Grandma because Grandma enjoyed them, but was so sick she hardly could eat much of them. Lovely person.” ________________________
