In Reply to: WIENINGS OF WISCONSIN by Conny Pontasch of 39

I am the father of Don Wiening and the first cousin of Mary Wiening, both of whom have recently posted to this site. It seems I am also a great-great-grandson of the person you mention.

I returned yesterday from a trip to Germany and wish I had known about the village of Wiening last week so I could check it out.

My sister, Helen Rumpf (nee Wiening)is the family geneaologist, and I will refer her to this site. However, I have copies of some of her worksheets which indicate, among other things:

Johann Christoph Friedrich Wiening born 8 May 1826 in Martenshagen or Wiepkenhagen Germany; died 23 July 1908 in Milwaukee.

His father was Johann Joachim Wiening; his mother's mainden name was Elisabeth Dorothea Brodhagen.

His wife's full maiden name was Luise Christiane Joihine Schmidt, borh 9 December 1827 and died of pneumonia 21 April 1906 in Milwaukee.

Children included:
Sophia Christiane Henriette b. 4 Aug 1859 8in Martenshagen Germany at 3 am

Johanni Marie Henriette borh 5 February 1862 in Martenshagen - I think the note says 12th hour

Wilhelm Carl Friedrich borh November 23 1864 in Martenshagen at 5:30 am

Johann Christian Martin, borh 24 May 1867 in Martenshagen

Johann Christian Martin Wiening was my great grandfather. My grandfather was Johann Carl Heinrich Wiening; my father was Robert Herman (really herrmann or hermann--I don't recall which but could find it somewhere, but he dropped the extra letters).
