Jack, I am one of the Sheboygan members of the family. I have four different lines of the family that I have not been aable to connect. The connection is in Germany. The four lines are the Sheboygan County line, the Washington County line, The Herman Trosky line still in Germany and the Brigette Garry line now in France. I think we are all decended from one Derk Opgenoorth born in Uedem Germany in 1730, but I cannot prove it. Some time ago, I was in connection with Christopher Shoofs, His grandmother Maria maried Heinrich (Henry) Shoofs. Unfortunately, I have not been able to make contact with him for several years. Do you know him? Have you any of the records he kept? I would love to hear from you.
