|Bio and Links|
I grew up in Freeport, Stearns, Minnesota and attended Sacred Heart school and church.|
I have been doing genealogy on and off for over 25 years now.
Beuning in German church records was Bäuning and also Bohning. Two of my great grandfather's brothers changed their names to Benning.
Herman Benning of Cincinnati and Henry Benning of Liverpool, England.
Beuning and Bäuning are both pronounced "Boy-ning".
Other families I research are Bergheh, Pieper, Klein, Michael, Wahls, Berscheid/Berscheit, Pluth, Ostendorf, Woeste, Deters, Schmiesing, Marbach, Peschel, Beste, Dünnebacke, Westbreck/Westbrock, Boecker, and Stoerman.
If there is a record I have entered and you have a stronger relation to that person than me I will transfer to you. Just ask. If I enter someone that is not related to me I will always transfer upon request.

Would you transfer this record to me? You previously transferred his parents, Bernard and Julianna. Thanks.
|Rich Olson||Mary Elizabeth Borgerding Wenker 114298516|
Please transfer this record to me. She was my great-grandmother. Thanks.
|Rich Olson||Bernard Henry Wenker 115808579|
Please transfer this record to me. He was my great-uncle. Thanks.
|Rich Olson||Mary Wenker 114298516|
One more mistake. My great-grandmother was Mary Wenker, the daughter of Catherine Borgerding. I have a pending edit. Sorry again, but I am just getting into the tangle of the Wenkers.
|Rich Olson||Thomas and Henry Borgerding|
Back like a bad penny.
Would you be willing to transfer both of these to me?
Father Thomas Borgerding 86544701
Father Henry Borgerding 86547969
They were brothers of my great-grandmother Catherine Borgerding (not yet linked to her parents).
Benedictine priests, as well as nuns, took new names when they were ordained. The name John with Father Thomas is possibly his birth name, but I have had a hard time finding that information for either of them.
St. Mary of the Rock is a very confusing subject, but it is in Franklin County, Indiana. My cousin from Cincinnati knows where it is and has been meaning to visit. I can research further with her and clarify this.
Thanks very much.

I have really messed up in previous messages, and I don't know if you read my last. Please change the text to read as follows, to correct the confusion I have caused:
Gerhard Henrich Wenker
The Wenker farm was a century farm east of Freeport. After Wilhelm, it was farmed by his son Bernard (Ben), then by his grandsons Al and Bill until they retired.
Other text should be removed.
I found this page, which lists his parents:
If you are willing, would you transfer this memorial to me? Thanks, and sorry for the confusion.
|Rich Olson||Bernard Henry Wender 115808579|
I am so sorry to muck up things so badly.
The list of children are the children of Bernard Wenker and Julia (Juliana) Hoeschen Wender, NOT of Wilhelm Wenker. Ben's children were Clara, Bill, Della, Marie, Al, Maurice (Max), and Joseph.
It was Ben's sons Al and Bill who ran the farm.
Caroline, Sister Benita, and Sister Macrina were some of Wilhelm's children.
It's a huge family, and I get confused easily. I promise to do better in the future.
|Rich Olson||Wilhelm Wenker 114298562|
My list of Wilhelm's children in my last message is incomplete, and I will have to verify all. Missing are (at least) Caroline (my grandmother), Sister Benita Wenker OSB, and Sister Macrina Wenker OSB. I will continue to look for more records on all of them.
|Rich Olson||Wilhelm Wenker 114298562|
Thanks for adding this record. I am the great-grandson of Wilhelm Wenker (through Caroline Wenker Euteneuer and Evelyn Euteneuer Olson). My mother advises that everyone called him "William," although he died before she was born.
I believe that the "Guilillunes" name is a misspelling or misreading of the Latin "Gulielmus." Priests sometimes used Latin versions of names on baptismal or other records. I have seen a census of Sacred Heart in Arban (1890?), which lists my mother's other grandfather Wilhelm Euteneuer using the Latin version of the name. (I wish I had a copy of "The Arban Way" by Robert J. Voigt, but I can't fine one.)
I would like to correct the name to just Wilhelm. I do not know where the "W" initial came from, and I am not sure it is correct.
The Wenker farm was a century farm east of Freeport. After Wilhelm, it was farmed by his sones Al and Bill until they retired. Wilhelm's children (no particular order) were Clara, Bill, Della, Marie, Al, Maurice ("Max"), and Joseph. There is a photograph of Max at Charlie's Cafe in Keillor's book In Search of Lake Wobegon.

Ken....You might want to check the paternal link of Henry John Rohling (115691772). The link indicates that he was born before his father was born.
