My Bio I have spent the last 40 years continuing to update the research started by Reinhold Piekenbrock (1933) in Germany and Sister Leonides in the United States. This book continues the stories of the Piekenbrocks who immigrated to America; Engelbert Piekenbrock, (1849), brothers Bernard, Adolph and Everhardt Piekenbrock (1850) and then two other siblings Godfried and Maria followed (1851) and Rudolph Piekenbrock (1920). All came from the same Vryhofe (Farm) in what is today Germany.
