Henss Family of Henry Co.
Posted by: Mary Steele Henss (ID *****5582) Date: July 10, 2003 at 22:47:17

Hello, My name is Mary and I am researching the family of William, (b.1831 Dormstead Ger.) and Catherine Henss (b. 1829 Kassel Ger.). They came to this country from Germany in the mid 1850's and settled in Henry Co. They raised 4 children Louis Conrad, Eliazabeth (Lizzie) William Kemmer and Kathryn (Katie).
Louis married Cora Allen, William married Sarah Davies and Katie married Joseph Wenger.
I am looking for information on where they were married in abt. 1857 and any info on Sarah Elnora Davies. I do know William was a wagon maker. Info on his life would be great! The Wenger family were Mennonites, so I wondered if the Henss family were too. That might help in the search for the ships that brought them to this country (William in abt. 1852, Catherine in 1855) And thereby thier parents.
Thanks! Mary
