Sonja, the Nicholas Lenning you are searching was, at least with that first name for wife and those children,Nicholas Joseph Lennig (2 n's, not 3)born 24 March 1789 in Mainz, Hesse Darmstadt, Germany [have seen baptismal certificate excerpt retrieved by a German friend].His wife was Christiana Bechler (my decipherment of several handwritten records), although if you can show Bickham, great!I have record from Lennig Family Bible owned by their son Joseph Lennig.
