This is only to pass on information that I picked up
in search of another line; I have no other info on
the Veltrup families in/near Emsdetten.
Willhelm Heinrich Veltrup, son of Johann Hermann Veltrup
& Anna Margareth Roht (Roth) of/near Emsdetten, Westphalia,
Germany, was March 9, 1798 at St. Pankratius Catholic Church, Emsdetten, Westphalia, Germany (LDS Microfilm
864358. Willhelm married Maria Gertrude Berkemeier who
was born in Greven, Westphalia, Germany. Maria inherited
her family farm and Willhelm took the farm name as was
the tradition of many European countries at the time.
Perhaps this info may help or provide guidance to the
research of the Veltrup family.
