The Wisconsin Henning - Texas Connection

The Wisconsin Henning - Texas Connection

Surnames: Henning, Hennig, Hoenig, Junker etc...
I am trying to tie back into the Wisconsin area Hennings from my gggrandfather, Julius Henning b: 1857, d: 1926.

What I am pretty confidant in:
He lists Wisconsin as his birthplace on census documentation, he married Julia Elizabeth Junker 6/1879, they had nine children together. He died in 1926.

What I think might be accurate:
Father's name Heinrich or Henry or J.C

Any information or nudges in the right direction are greatly appreciated!

Hi,
I'm a research volunteer, not related.
I'm sure you saw on the 1880 census Harris Co. Texas
Julius Henning, 24
Julia, 22
Lula, 4 b. Tx
Jennie, 3mo
brother - Adolph Henning, 16, Wi
sister - Adah Henning, 13, Wi

Went back to 1870 census to look for everyone at home.
1870 Wi, Milwaukee Co and City (indexed as Hensing)
Julius Henning 59, Austria, Carpenter
Sophia, 46, Austria
Julius, 12, Wi
Amelia, 7, Wi
Adolph, 5, Wi
Ida, 2, Wi

1860 Milwaukee
Julius is listed as Hennrich, b. Prussia, carpenter
Sophia, b. Prussia
Julius

Can't seem to find much more on the Wisconsin end.
Good Luck in your search
Judy

In case this is helpful, the local German papers have death notices or other clippings for Harry, Henry, or a Heinrich Henning in 1897, 1898, 1916, 1918, 1926. These are entries or references found in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). There are about 300 occurrences of Henning in the current version of the growing index.

Gary -- thanks so much. I have learned a little more about Henry from an interview with my Grand Uncle. Henry apparently passed away before the turn of the century (1900) and is buried in Beaumont, Texas in a cemetery that was relocated when Interstate 10 was built. Not yet found the particular cemetery, though.

I will definitely check these out to learn more! Thanks!
