Please do research the Henke family history, if you have the desire to do so. I have next to nothing on this familien name Henke. Hencke. The family name appeared on records around the cities of Muden Oertze bei Fassberg.
As you know she was Anna Marie Henke. She married Johann Heins. After birth of a few children they moved to Oldendorf. That is where Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer
[geb. eichdorf] married Maria Heins. I have often wondered how William Meyer met the daughter Maria Dorothea Heins. Perhaps the family moved there first. I have wondered if they had something to do with the hunting lodge at Roethen in the Goehrde area.
If you have results, would you please let me know what you find. Thank you.
Note: In America Heins took on the spelling of Heinz by the various relatives.
