Excerpts translated from article " Dahlenburg Old Views" - Name Kantor Menke


If your interested in our Dahlenburg  ancestors lives and places,   then you could  find this link of the small quote from " Dahlenburg Old Views" of interest. [translated]                                            

On the  57th In August 1905, the craftsmen involved in the construction of the St John's church presented the photographer. In the front row, seated from left: 1. Maurer Schulz from Buendorf, 3. Kantor Menke, 4. Pastor Luke, 5. Maurermeister Stute. Third row: First from left: apprentice Heinrich Kruse. On the top right edge of the picture pasted architect William Matthies, after a construction period of two years, the new St John's church was inaugurated on 27 August 1905, .....  [ In the excerpts from the book for this article   they were refering to some photographs and postcards, which I can't reproduce here.  [ Dahlenburg  in Alten Ansichten ]]

You may have noticed that I have mentioned many times the M & M guy in Fairmont and his vast knowledge about our Families. And yes it includes a vast amount of association of names.  I try to recall those many associations from time to time.  I was reminded today of his  comment about a Kantor at the church and the large organ as I found this article about  the Dahlenburg town.

It reminded me that earlier this year  Herr Rose mentioned that maybe our grgrgrandmother  Henke family name might not be that,  but maybe MENKE.   He said  he saw something in the church records that refered to a woman MENKE. I wish he had told me more specifics of that, but he didn't. He also didn't know I had received some information from the Bergen church Pastor in Belsen landkries Celle.
Ssince she had lived by Mueden,  he had suggested, I contact the  Fassberg church. Sorry to say I that I haven't  yet done so.  Why you wonder.

Later the information from the Bergen church and family information from Soltau has been put out at the Gedbas and so I thought no need. I also specifically wrote to one of the site managers that dealt with those family names. Even so,  I am not sure how the pastor at Bergen got that little bit of information if  Heinrich  Heins and Anna Maria Henke were married in the  Mueden Oertze area.

To make a long story short, there has been very little information about Henke at the Soltau - Fallingbostel family names. I really do need to find more information. And still write to the church. My thought is that they must have emigrated there, though I have seen a few mentioned in the German phone book. It is so far a dead end with the Henke family name surname. 

 I did find her death recorded at the Nahrendorf church. The documents on the marriage of Anna Maria Henke's daughter can be seen further back of this arootdiggerblogspot of Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer and Maria Dorothea Heins marriage and their family records.

So since Herr Rose told me that,  I have  been looking for information on Menke,  while I am researching  family surname ancestors in  the various Celle archives and
            Always hopeful for a clue  as a rootdigger  digs on.

Ohio FEHRING Family Data




Talk about finding a female Waldo. 
Well that's about as hard as it gets to find something about the Fehring who found our Mary at Galena or Jackson county, Iowa before they wed. Also,  I never found a Mary Meyer on the census in 1870. She was there a short time. First because I wasn't sure if she was the oldest Mary or the youngest. Plus she may have had to have the name Catherine or Elisabeth too. One is not always sure which name they used. 

Then too, nothing fits exactly with a lot of pieces of research available about the Fehring family in United States It's just that the pieces don't all fit together as of yet,  that prove anything. I'll share some of the information I have. Eventually something will fall into place. 
I don't really know where Johan B. Fehring or Johann D. Fehring originated  before  Jo Davies county in Illinois. I know little about the  few Fehrings that once lived at Jackson county, Iowa.  And very little about the Mary Fehring who owned land in the same area that Fred Meyer squatted. Records did show he was considered her Tenant. They were seeking title to that land through the supreme  courts. I share this with you because someone suggested theI Galena Illinois Fehrings came from Ohio.

Those listed below  are all taken from ancestry.con census.

Keep in mind that we had two Mary Meyer born in Germany,  who could have married a Fehring at Galena area. And one of them  stayed in germany and  married a Schmobel in the shipping business.  Unless it was a stepsister that married the Schmobel.

1. Katharina Maria Elisabeth. - October 24, 1839, 
 2. Maria Katharina - October 27, 1847.  

My thoughts heavily lean towards Mary # 2

 I dont think this Mary  born 1853 listed first below works for me. And not possible for them to have been married already at 1880 for 27 years. Maria was born at oldendorf or Eichdorf.   And if the Mary Fehring  were to fit into the shoes of the  "Montana Mary Fehring" she would have no previous children. Two would have been  Else and her eldest,  Wilhelm not born until 1875 . Already living in  Montana by 1880. So for three or more reasons I think we can cancel out this family.

LÜTGENS, aus Siecke Altenmedingen Barskamp mit Meyer

LUETGENS FAMILY TREE HISTORY
I had asked a friend if I could see information in the book of Familienkunde aus Altenmedigen about Luhmann at Bohndorf.  On that page 189 there was other names as well Luetjens is one. I have carried an interest in the name since learning of them in the Lumann / Schlaphoff tree.  I have a few more names and relations to share from other family trees. So stay tuned for more exciting revelations.

Highland Township Cemetery - Surnames S-Z - Greene County, Iowa



Not sure where I found this quote but it is fitting.

 "'Passing strangers, call not this a place of fear and gloom, For it is', at this spot I come to linger. It is my loved wife's tomb.

Hope you see someone in the family where they might have lingered.

Highland Township Cemetery - Surnames S-Z - Greene County, Iowa:

"'Wife of G. W. Secord; Age 19 yrs, 17 days at death'
Secrest, Catharine, b. 1902, d. 23 Sep 1904, par. H. E. Secrest ;   B. C, Age 2 yrs 1m, 27 days at death
Seil, Emma Dorthea, b. 21 Dec 1901, d. 19 Jun 1974, par. Richard Kanning,  Homemaker, age 73 at death
Seil, Henry F., b. 1898, d. 8 Jan 1983, Bn Lohrville, Farmer, Died Perry
Shaver, Grace J., b. 1898, d. 1928, par. T. Clipperton
Shelton, Eugene H., b. 2 Oct 1916, d. 19 Apr"


I know I said  surnames S-Z but that won't be today.
Every little bit helps. As they say,           "Have a nice day. "
