Surnames: WESSELS, TOENNIS
Does anyone know of the Wessels Family of the Cottonwood area? Herman Wessels was b. 1860 in Germany. He married in 1890 to Bernadine "Dena" (we don't know her maiden name). They had children including son, Albert William Wessels b. 1896 in Lincoln, KS. Herman died 8 Sept 1932 and Dena died on 21 Sept. 1945 at Greencreek, Idaho. We would very much like to find Dena's maiden name. Albert William Wessels m. Helena "Lena" Toennis. Her family was also from Cottonwood. Any help or advice will be appreciated.

Thanks so much for all the help and information. I found one of the children's (Albert's) marriage record on the LDS site and it confirms Bernadine Wessel's maiden name as Welterman. It was so nice of you to share so much.

Albert is my grandfather. I have a lot of information including pictures of Herman and Dina, the names of their parents, and address where Dina was born. What do you want to know?
