Re: Searching for Wensings
My family originates from Bocholt, Westphalia. Name variations occur, Wensing becomes Wensink. Most of the family are living in the Netherlands bu I traced some in Ohio. In 1846 a Jan Hendrik Wensink arrived in the US with his familyWife called Maria Magdalena Bonhoff. The couple had one son and six daughters. Son was called Gerrit Jan, who I found back on the 1860 census list as John Wensing. He was born in Lichtenvoorde in 1825 and died in Ohio in 1889. Apparently he married a Hendrika Lammers in 1854 in Ohio, also born in Holland.
Well, if there is anything in it that connects with you maybe we can exchange some info.
