Re: Rienks family, Netherlands, since 1590
Have you come across a Beinze Cornelius Rienks (aka B.C. or benjamin cornelius) in your book? He emigrated from Het Bild, Friesland in 1853 and married Martha Vanderploeg, also of Friesland. They eventually settled in Dubuque County Iowa, where I found them in the 1870 census.
