I think we may have a connect here.My ancestor is Henry A. Wessels (my 4th ggrandfather), born 1822 in Oldenburg, Germany.His family immigrated to Cincinnati.He was married to Mary Wessels and theyhad six children, all born in Ohio:Josephine b. 1855, John b. 1857, Mary A. (my line) b. 1860, August b. 1863, Henry b. 1867, and Joseph b. 1869.
This is all the information I have.I would love to flesh this out a bit if any one has additional information
