Gertrude was a linen spinner in Germany and came to America in 1861 at age 18 on a sail boat taking 90 days. Gertrude had at least one brother, John Benning. I have a photo of a Bernard Benning born in 1872 but do not know if he is a brother.

Gertrude's husband,Herman Rotering of 1844 was one of 6 brothers born of Anton Rotering and Gertrude Hunker (pronounced Hinker)both born in Germany and came to Schoepp Valley in 1869.
