Re: John Wendelken Nov 10 1842,,Germany to New York
This did not go through the first time so I am trying again.
Incidentally, I forgot to ask how you are related, you said you come through John Henry.Are you related to the Broadhursts?
You have made a positive connection.My wife, Mary Wendelken Nixon, is the daughter of Charles L., the brother of John Henry.First a correction on Charles L. (Ludwig) birth date.It is August 19,1878.Second, I have George's date as 3/./1884 not 1886.I will have to check my records to verify the date I have. Could be wrong.As for Elisabeth, I believe she is Louise Elizabeth and I have her date as 2/23/1880.I did not have a date for Carrie so 1884 helps.Incidentally, I show it as, Carrie "Clare".I also have one other that I will have research my records for, Caroline b. 4/1/1882.
John from Hanover was "Johan"according to his naturalization paper, the original of which I have.He must have changed it later to John as the court papers appointing his wife, Elizabeth, administrator show his name as John.
Among other things I have is the baptismal certificate of Catherine (Catharina) states that Johan was born in Osterholz, Hanover, Germany and her mother Elizabeth Menges was born in Tfifflingheim Grofshzshune Hessen,Although Catherine was born and baptized in New York the baptismal certificate is in German.
I am in New Jersey, where are you?More later as I musts go now.
Please let me hear from you.
