Ok, I have found some information on Fred Elmer Rienks(b. 1886, Kersey, Colorado). He had 2 Brothers and a sister. George W. Rienks(b. 1883 Kersey, Colorado), Howard Roy Rienks(b. 1888 Kersey, Colorado), and Glara G. Rienks(b 1891, Kersey, Colorado). They are the children of Cornelius Rienks(b. 1859, Iowa) and Isabel G. (b. 1861, New York).
Cornelius Rienks is the son of Beinze Cornelis (b. 1827, Netherlands)and Martha Elizabeth (b. Mar 1831, Germany) Rienks. The 9 children they had are as follows: Cornelius Rienks b. 1858, Iowa Henry Rienks b. Iowa Abigail Rienks b. Iowa Johanna Rienks b. Iowa Benjamin Rienks b. Iowa d. 1947 Greeley, Colorado Martha Rienks b. Iowa John Rienks b. Iowa Albert Rienks b. Iowa Frank Rienks b. Iowa
Beinze Cornelis Rienks and Martha Elizabeth immigrated to the United States on June 11, 1853. The census information shows them having lived in Iowa in 1900.
I do not have a last name for Isabel G. or Martha Elizabeth. Nor can I go any further than Beinze Cornelis Rienks. I am posting this information in hopes that someone will be able to add to it. Thanks, Sheri
