I traced my family name to my grand father Henrich Onken signing in at Ellis Island in 1894 with his older sister and brother. Dorothea and Onno
A year later his father and mother and possibly 2 younger sisters signed in at Ellis Island.
Heinrich and Gretze Onken were my great grandparents both born in 1842, in Germany.
Naturalized as Henry and Grace Onken maden name Aden.
Family left Antwerp 1894-1895 and settled first in Champaign, Ill. then to Osecola, Iowa. and finally to southern California.
I appreciate any information you may have.
Thank You Sincerely,
