My Grandfather was from Wieda, Germany. He had a Brother, Louis and a sister, Anna. Born June 18, 1865. Looking for Information on his parents, or any relatives.
Possible 2nd brother Karl.
Immigration Year 1892.
I have sparse information so far. My mother was Ruth Anna Pauline Bornkessel and was born in Wieda. Her father was Willi Otto Bornkessel b. 20 Oct 1908 in Wieda.
Parents of Willi Bornkessel were Carl Bornkessel and Anna Marie Kamphenkel. Also both born in Wieda although I have no birth dates for them yet.
Chances of KAMPHENKEL in a small town like Wieda not being related are minuscule, imho. I would be interested in any information you have if you would like to share. Is your line the one that went to Adams County, Illinois? very interested in William's siblings.
