I am looking for the relatives of Henrietta Sengbusch or Saengbusch b 16 Feb 1865 in Pommein. She lived in Walworth Co. WI. She was married to Carl Wilke b 1858 Germany. Some of their children were born in Walworth Co. WI.
Those children with pre-1907 birth records on the Internet are Minnie Marie 23 Nov 1890, Henrietta Bertha 07 Feb 1895 and Arnold Louis 12 July 1896. Charles Albert Wilke's draft record says that he was born on the 8 Dec 1888 in Elkhart in Walworth county.
The family moved to Grant, Clark Co. WI by the 1900 census. Minnie married Pagenkopf, Henrietta Bertha married Counsell and Helen the youngest child also married a Counsell.
This is a marriage record for a couple with the same names who were married at the right time in Walworth Co.
groom's name: Carl Wilke
bride's name: Henriet Saengbusch
marriage date: 10 Sep 1886
groom's father's name: William Wilke
groom's mother's name: Caroline Landfatt
bride's father's name: Frederick Saengbusch
bride's mother's name: Huth
indexing project (batch) number: I00326-6
system origin: Wisconsin-EASy
source film number: 1275587
reference number: cn 199
Collection: Carl Wilke, "Wisconsin, Marriages, 1836-1930"
Based on dates of death Carl and Henrietta seem to be buried in Lomira with a Frederick Wilke who appears to be Carl's father. Of course people in this time frame often used different of their many names. So Carl could have his father listed on the marriage record as Frederick but the grave stone could say William. No one would have seen a problem. But those of us following do see a problem.
Newspaper death notices would be helpful especially for the parents of Carl aka Charles Wilke b 1858 and his wife Henrietta aka Hattie b 1865. Actually death notices on anyone would be great. Thanks for any help that you can give.
