Don . . . To determine if your Onken family who settled in Viola, Osceola Iowa in 1896 were relatives of Georg Wilhelm Christian Onken b. 13 Apr 1844 (a son of Hayo Harms Onken b. 25 May 1818) and my Great grandfather who settled in Cass County and later Audubon County Iowa, I need a bit more information about your Henry Onken's (b. 1880) father Heinrich. A possible connection may exist in that my great-grandfather Georg Wilhelm Onken had a brother named Heinrich Friedrich Adolf Onken b. 14 Apr 1850 or 1852 on a farm at Osteraltendeich Minsen Germany. However, this Heinrich was married in Germany to a Elise GERRIETS and he died in Tossens, Germany 16 Apr 1928. The latter information seems to indicate we are not talking about the same Heinrich, but residences and marital staus can change over time?? Gene
