Re: Sophia Maria Renken b 1821 - Breman, Germany
Hello! I'm just starting to research my father's side of the family, and I noticed your post. I'm not sure if there's any relation, but my grandmother's maiden name was Ursula Renken and she was from Bremen, Germany. She came to the US (New Jersey) around 1950. I really don't know much about her family, but I know her father died very young, and her mother remarried. I guess there could be some very distant connection somewhere!
