Re: Kloes of Milwaukee,WI.
I found your response interesting.Looked on my map but found no Sanggens.Don't know the boundaries of Hess. Darm. but assume they would include Damstadt, near Frankfurt.There is Giessen just NE of FF, and about 50km from Homberg, the village where I have researched the Kloes family.There are a few Johann Henrich's in the early research, don't know who they married but I will get out my records and see if I see any Margarets.Have you done any research from Germany?Do these places match yours?Other towns that Kloes' seem to have passed thru are Allendorf, Bielstein, Bar Marienburg. I cannot locate their whereabouts prior to 1800, when they 'appeared' in Homberg.Church records are from Emmerichenheim.
