Surname Rieckens and Riecken and locations Bleckede and Stolpe

Red alert family,
I have again made another mess at Ancestry in my family tree annexing. I hope to sort it out soon.

I have been busy doing some follow up, and I can say I am still not finished with Rieckens Riechens, Riecken. I do not have a name for the private Poster. The poster has many other families with similar information. At this time please take locations and the tree with a grain of salt. This tree information falls under Knoop, Ryan, Mann, Dye, Schmidt, Henze, Drusel, Wright, Golden { Mostly names M&M claimed we have. } So I am not finnished with them yet.

My Riecken[s] involve Schoop, Schenk, Ahrens, Meyer and villages, Seedorf, Dahlenburg, Ahndorf, Ventschau. Others.

Another spouse name in the picture is name Helmer. We do have the name in our big family tree, but I am not sure if it is here.

There are obviously errors in any attachment I can make. and I did at Ancestry. I shall have to go back and delete a few things. However I want some names to remain. Just not in a attached state.

****My Juergen Friedrich Meyer born 1814 father is Johan Juergen Meyer from Radenbeck and his wife is Maria Elisabeth Behrens from Neetzendorf. She is not a Gumme. And Johan Juergen's father is Heinrich Christ. Meyer also a shepherd from Radenbeck. I think Christoph, rather than Christian.

Our Majority of Rieckens acccording to Gloria at Petesch Hoerschleman come from Windischthum, Bleckede, Prussia/Germany. Now they could be two different families. But some of their Riecken would have to have gone to Jackson county Iowa. Okay guys, I will have to fix it at ancestry before midnight. Nothing wrong with the author, who is only experimenting themselves. Which is obvious by an indecision of two different spouses names with same birth and marriage date.

Note : ** Why would she be dying there? Had she and her husband given up the home place?

Note *** why would Henry Schenk's wife die in Indiana. It's probably after his death and she went to live with her children. Census has to be viewed here as well as stones. She would be buried along with her husband!
Note : I do have a Sophia Rickens married to Michels, but the date is different than this Sophia.
My main source so far is Gloria Hoerschelman / Petesch, whose work can be verified in Germany.

Note: I must say that the bad, interpreted information wrong at ancestry does get taken and perpetuated, and annexed. I hold disclaimers on the pages about the wrong information, but I don't think people take the time to read comments. and the stories.
Read the comments.
You should people, You must!

  1. I think I received a email from someone with information on Riecken. Sometimes it is confusing with the different spelling. At the time he wrote, I wasn;t sure where he was refering the location. And if they were mine or a speculation about the Rieckens in General
