Re: Hinrich Renken and Meta Pape
Johann Hinrich Rencken (Renken) was my great grandfather. He was born in Heudamm in 1833 and died in Osterholz in 1908. He married Meta Papen (Pape) in 1870. They lived their lives in Germany never coming to the States. I believe they are buried in Osterholz. I am also just starting my research. We can share. Don't worry about your English, it's better than my German.
