I just can't figure this one out. I can't wait to see what it is.
I will say that the guy was German and born in the 1820s.
Michael is the first name Mimka (spelled it wrong of course.)
This one is a toughie. First letter is either an M or W. Meinck? Middle initial is L. That was easy. Last name Siedlebaum?
Anonymous is close on the first name. This one is the actual signature of the individual and he usually used Mimke instead of Mimka. Later generations of this family used Mimka, but this individual (who was the actual immigrant), used Mimke most of the time.
Mimke Habben ???Was he a Doctor ? Ha Ha
I agree with Cindi. Siedlbaum
Mimke L. Habben is it.
