I couldn't help but find your Henry Weise information interesting. With the exception of the spelling, Weise as opposed to Wiese, my husbands family also had a Hans Wiese in the Davenport Iowa area. My husbands gr-gr grandfather, Asmus Wiese, was born in 1828 in Feifgergen, Holstein, Germany. He and his wife came to America in 1866. They lived for three years at the home of Amus's brother, Hans, in Davenport, Iowa. Hans had come to America earlier. My info states, though, that they were the only two family members to come to the US. Our Asmus moved from Davenport in 1869 and settled in Washington County, NE. (Just north of Omaha). Many descendents reside in the Omaha area today.
