Apparently the son of Fredrick Luther and Margaret Wilbert (Milbert) born in Vincennes IN about 1878. As no records are avaiable prio to 1882 I can't confirm this. Fredrick died before 1879 and Maggie moved to Little Rock AR where she appears in the 1880 census as a widow with John , Joseph and Charlottr Louise Ellerkamp.
Fredrick Herman Luther was from Illinois and they were married in Richland County IL 17 Aug 1877. Have no idea what happend to Herman Luther except he just vanishes.
No idea why the son John had Maggies name from a prior marriage. She had been married to Antone (Anthony) Ellerkamp. Married 19 Nov 1868 in Vincennes IN. He passed away 1 Jun 1874 in Vincennes.
Have contacted the library in Vincennes and they could provide no more information. Contacted two chuches in Vincennes , both Catholic to see if they had baptism records and the reply was no. I have a feeling he was bapisted in The St John The Batist Catholic Church but can find no records.
John Henery Ellerkamp was my wifes Grandfather and he passed away in 1954 in New Gulf, TX
