Steve, my g-grandfather, William Henry Feld was born in Hannover, June 22, 1855, and came to the US in 1865. I haven't found where he entered the US, but he was in ILLINOIS, before he finally settled in Chanute, Ks. He married Catherine Rensing, who was born in ILLINOIS.
He always said he came to the US alone, and had no family.
I haven't been able to find him on the 1870 census yet, as it is not indexed.
I just wonder if he may have been related to the Lengerich line.
