Hi there, The Noffke family you are talking about, are Pioneer Families of the Logan Village/Bethania area.
Yes there were 11 children and from what we have been able to work out 3 were born before the marriage. Ferdinand and Emilie married in the Registry Office in Beenleigh which is not far from where the family settled.
If there is any further questions you have, on behalf of the Logan Village Museum, I would love to answer them for you.
The info we have is as follows. dob 14/9/1847 Germany dod 25/8/1929 Qld, as yet we have not been able to find his burial. Time will tell with that one.
dom is correct.
Emilie dob 26/1/1852 Bergen Germany dod 16/2/1929 in Lochrose, Qld.
Would you like the children and their info as well?
