David Zink (1835-1903) Germany, IL, KS
Here's a Zink family I haven't seen much on, so in case anyone else is looking... here's what I've found so far.
Jane Ringrose, son Martin (age 9) and daughter Jessie (age 6) immigrated to the US aboard the SS Adriatic coming to NY from Liverpool on 11 Nov 1873.Jane Ringrose then married David Zink in Champaign Co., IL on 12 Mar 1874.In 1880, they're in La Crosse, Rush Co., KS and apparently stayed there until their deaths.They had one son together, George Zink (b. 6 Jul 1875 per WWI draft reg.).David Zink died 14 Jan 1903 and is buried in Friends Sandcreek Cemetery, La Crosse, Rush Co., KS.Jane appears in the 1915 La Crosse, Rush Co., KS census, but not in the 1920 Federal Census (that I could find, anyway).Their son George married Maggie Newman sometime around 1900, and she died 30 Sep 1905.She is also buried in the Friends Sandcreek Cemetery.George then married Flora L. Nelson in Sedgwick Co., KS on 19 Sep 1910, and they continued to reside in Rush Co., KS.They had at least two children: Thelma and Archie N. Zink (1916-2005).
I do not know what became of Martin Ringrose, but Jessie E. Ringrose went on to marry Lewis Franklin Carson abt 1882.It is because of her step-father being David Zink that so many folks have her maiden name as Zink.Jessie and Lewis had two children: Margaret (m. Clyde O. Hunt) and John A. Carson.Jessie considered her maiden name to be Ringrose, as indicated on quilts she made for her daughter and another gal in the 1930s - they had her name as "Jessie Ringrose Carson" and on John A. Carson's marriage return, he indicated his mother as Jessie Ringrose (WA Digital Archives).
I have no further information on this family.
