Since there is no Vens forum, I'll post this here in the Venz forum. Looking for information on the ancestry of Heinrich Johan Vens, b. @1830 in Germany, buried 24 Jun 1897 St. Louis, MO. He married Gertrude Maria Unknown, b. April 1835 in Germany, buried 1 Mar 1909 St. Louis, MO. They had at least 5 children: Johan Gerhard, b. Sep 1856 in Germany; Lena C., b. @1861; Catharine, b. @1865 in MO; Mary, b. @1868 in MO; Elizabeth, b. @1872. Any information on the above will be appreciated.
