Do you know the names of parents or siblings of Christian Jens? I am looking for info on Fredericke (Rika) Jens and sister Caroline Jens from Mecklenberg. Rika and Caroline were born between 1830-1850. Caroline lived in Appleton, WI until late 1860s when she moved to Monroe Co, WI. Rika and husband Ludwig Schultz (also from Mecklenberg) lived in Monroe Co., WI. Am trying to get more info on the family. I have the names of their parents.

Thanks for the info. I don't know enough about the Jens family yet so I will refer to your message in my search for info. I now have a birth year for Fredericke (1842) and Caroline (1850) and I have found that their parents were Johann Jens and Katherina Schnell. The family was from Mecklenberg.

I am a granddaughter of a William Jens who is a brother to Christian Jens. They came from the above area maybe 30 years later. Many of the names mentioned are on the research I received from an archivist in Schwerin Germany. It seems quite likely that a connection could be made. The name Schnell is in the family line. Is it not true that relatives lived very close together? You did a great job on recording the tree. Please respond. I have information you may be intereated in. Anita Boette -aljboe@aol.com
