"Come with" is also fairly common in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, which was
largely settled by Germans.
Dale Coye considered:
Do your kids want to come with?
...Maybe German influence from mitkommen- Kommen die Kinder mit?
My maternal grandfather came from a German neighborhood in Dubuque; some
German was spoken in his home. He said, and we picked up, "...come with."
I can't remember how common this usage was in my Quint City neighborhoods,
but it was common enough that our use didn't sound strange to other folks.
I know there was some German settlement in the Iowa/Illinois Mississippi
Valley, but I don't know how much.
