I am doing my family history and I noticed that I have an Anna Magarete Brinkmann who married a Heinrich Tho Malm (or ToMallen ???) in Germany. This is dated back to 1723 when Anna was born. I was wondering if you have been able to trace your history back that far and if you have any information on the Brinkmann's. She is the only one that I have and I am looking to find the rest of that family. I found a TON of Brinkmanns buried in St. Johns Cemetery in Country Club Hills, IL whick is a tiny cemetery where all the ZumMallens are buried and I am wondering if they are related to Anna... If they immigrated to the US from Germany. (I think it more than luck that they are buried so close to eachother!!) Any help you can provide me would be great!!! I am not sure if maybe they have the same parents?
