Hi Mary,
I'm just curious. Using the information from the 1945 obit of Henrietta Wilke that Kathryn provided.

It said her maiden name was Simon and her only surviving sibling was a sister, Bertha Hernke. (Bertha d. 1963) So, looking up Bertha, found her on 1900 Milwaukee Co, town of Lake living with her brother and family and their mother.
*indexed this time as Sangbusch
Ernst Sangbusch, 34, b.Mar 1866 Ger> US 1881
Bertha (Taube), 32, b. Ger, mar 8yr 3/2 children
Martha, 7
Edna, 3
mother- Fredrika Sangbusch, 64, b. Mar 1836, 9ch/5 liv
sister- Bertha Hernke, 20, Aug 1879, mar 0yrs, 0ch

Checking on Ernst Sengbusch found the possible immigration Oct 1880 (first names abbreviated on pass list)
Fdrk Sengbusch, 41
Frka , 45
Wihl (male) 18
Ernst, 14
Ludwig, 9
Elisa, 7
Berthe, 1
(no listing for Henrietta?)

Ernst died in IL, Lake Co, Waukegan 22 May 1930, the IL Death online listed his birthplace as St.Mein, Germany
Father - Frederick Sengbusch
Mother - Fredrica Hugh

The IL deaths also lists Louis (poss Ludwig?) Sengbusch b. 4 Aug 1870 - d. 22 Mar 1941 b. Demien, Germany
Father - Frederick Sengbusch
Mother - Fredrika Huth

These are too close to not be connected.
But, still baffled about Henrietta. Unless she came over from Germany at a different time than the rest of the family.

If you unravel this, could you please post to take care of my curiosity?
