A German gentleman Wekenmann whom I met over the Internet kindly mailed me some family history on the Weckenmanns/Wekenmanns of Germany, but the data did not cite any sources. He said my ancestor, Thomas Weckenmann, b. 13 Nov 1822 in Hirschau, Rottenberg, Germany and buried in Lebanon, St. Clair, Illinois, was the son of Michael Wekenmann, b. 23 Sep 1788, Weingartner, Hirschau, Germany, d. 6 Apr 1931 and Rosina HAUG, b. 4 Sep 1791, Hirschau, Germany, d 24 May 1866. Michael Wekenmann and Rosina HAUG were married 13 Oct 1813 in Germany, but I do not know where.
Does anyone recognize any of these names and/or places? I would certainly appreciate hearing from anyone who might assist me in my search for evidence to corroborate the information provided by the kind man in Germany. Thank you.
