Re: Bernard ARKENBERG Family
I've also done some research on the Arkenberg family... I'd be curious to know if you can make a connection to mine.The family I was researching lived in (or near) Damme, Oldenburg, Germany and the information I have came from the St. Viktor Catholic Church records at Damme (available from the LDS library).
Johann Bernard Arkenberg m. Catherina Maria Tonsmann (sp?) abt. 1828.
They had the following children:
i. Maria Elizabeth. Born on 30 Oct 1829 (15 Jul 1851 she married Johannes Herman Eilking b. 28 Feb 1816)
ii. Maria Agnes. Born on 21 Sep 1832
iii. Bernadina. Born on 21 Dec 1834
iv. Johann Heinrich. Born on 11 Jun 1837died on 3 Jul 1837
v. Johann Bernard (9 Aug 1838-16 Jul 1924)
vi. Maria Anna. Born on 6 Sep 1841
vii. Bernard Heinrich. Born on 13 Jan 1845
The reason I'm researching this family is Johann Bernard (1838-1924) married Maria Agnes Grever at St. Viktor in 1865.They immigrated in 1866, living first in Cincinnati, and then on to St. Marys, Kansas in 1880.Agnes Grever is a sister to my g.g.grandmother.
If anyone can make a connection, please let me know and I'll send you what I know.
