Infant Hensel

Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

I'm sending this correction in a different way because I think it requires an explanation, as it's not obvious to anyone unfamiliar with this family.

To my knowledge/research, there were only two Hensel men in Sheridan County, in particular McClusky, in the period around 1910. One was my adoptive great grandfather Gottlieb, married in 1907 in McHenry County to Carolina Hoff, and the other was his brother Martin, married in 1906 in McHenry County to Paulina Hoff, Carolina's sister.

The reason that Gottlieb and Carolina adopted my grandmother (whose mother had died) is that they could not have children. The story in the family is that Carolina had six miscarriages before they adopted my grandmother in 1915, and in the 1910 Census it notes she is the mother of no children.

On the other hand, Martin and Paulina had four children that lived, and in the 1910 Census it notes that Paulina is the mother of 3, but only 2 living. Both of these couples were living with the parents of Carolina and Paulina.

As there is no other Hensel I am aware of that was in Sheridan County around that time, in particular McClusky, I would think that this Infant could only have been a child of Martin and Paulina (Hoff) Hensel, born sometime after 18 Mar 1906 and before 26 Apr 1910 in North Dakota, and died before 26 Apr 1910 in McClusky, Sheridan County, North Dakota, though depending exactly on the death date it could slightly predate the formation of Sheridan County.
