I have several newspaper articles regarding the death of Christian Yunker in March 1900. No parents were mentioned, nor were his wife and children named.

I do believe Christian Yunker is the Christian listed with my grgrandfather on this ship passenger list:
Ship Calabria, arr NY 5 Oct 1872
Sophia Junker/42/f/matron/Germany
Adam Junker/22/m/weaver/Germany
Ludwig Junker/16/m/labr/Germany (Louis in America, my line)
Sophia Junker/13/f/servant/Germany
Christian Junker/15/m/servant/Germany
Heinrich Junker/11/m/child/Germany
Christina Junker/15/f/child/Germany
Jacob Junker/6/m/child/Germany
Julia Junker/3 mo/infant/Germany

The Yunker clan has been difficult for me. I have nothing identifying Christian or Louis's parents. I have identified some family ties through location, mentions of niece, nephew, some naturalization and guardianship records. I'm even sure of the exact relationship of the Junkers on the passenger list. I found Christian's children married and living in Michigan in later years.

I can do have more on the Yunkers if you want it. Louis and Henry (Heinrich) ended up in Kansas. Adam (John Adam) was also in Kansas around 1900 but returned to Ottawa Co, OH in later years. Christina married John Balduf and lived in Ingham Co, MI. Jacob lived in Ottawa Co, OH for most of his life.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Thanks, Tracy
