My ancestor is - Heinrich Bis(s)winkel, born at Scharnhorst, Hannover, about 1710. His son: Heinrich Joachim Bis(s)winkel, was born February, 1748, (probably also at Scharnhorst) and died on 23 February, 1829 - aged 81 years and 3 weeks. Heinrich Joachim married twice. (1) first wife was - Anna Ilse Sophie Wahrholz, who died 11 March, 1803. There were two sons from this marriage - born on 18 Feb 1786 and 14 Nov 1790. (2) second wife was - Marie Sophie Luhren (Luhring), widow of Scheller. She was born in 1773 and died 02 June 1832, aged 59 years. The son from this marriage is my great grandfather - Johann Friedrich Biswinkel - born 06 May 1819 at Uelzen, Hannover, died 30 December 1879 at Buchsfelde, South Australia. I am wanting to contact descendants of: - the two sons by the first wife (Anna Wahrholz), and - any issue from the second wife’s (Marie Luhren) first marriage to - Scheller.
