I am seeking Thalke Margarethe Wessels, m. 3 June 1768 Okke Behrends, Marx, Ostfriesland, Germany. Okke Behrends, b. 21 Oct 1713, Reepsholt, Ostfriesland, Germany, d. 17 Oct 1783, Wiesede, Ostfriesland, Germany. They were the parents of Wubke Maria Onken (Behrends), b. 17 April 1780, m. 5 Aug 1800 Tobias Tobiassen, d. 4 May 1864, Marx, Germany. I thought that towns mentioned above are not far from Bremen and there might be some connections at some point. I have no other information about the Wessels line,but I know that a number of Wessels immigrated to Wayne Township, Jones County, Iowa and were members of the Wayne Zion Lutheran Church.My mother has a copy of the Church Anniversary books.I also have information on the other families mentioned above.
