RESEARCHERS: Anita Henning (ahenning3@cox.net) who is descended from Gesina's brother
SOURCES: Most information was supplied by Anita Henning. She knew Gesina's approximate year of birth from her death record and that allowed her to be identified as a sister of Herman Hamers on a research document which was based on records from Steinbild parish. From that document her date and place of birth and parents' names were known. Confirming the relationship with Herman was the fact that Herman's wife, Thecla Frerkes, was godmother for Gesina's child born in 1869 and Gesina was godmother for a child of Herman's that same year.

Mary HONEYGAN 18, Hannoer
listed with Henry BENSON family
RESEARCHERS: Dolores Rizzo (Imminggenealogy@aol.com) who supplied much of the information about this emigrant
SOURCES:

This ID is not 100% certain because Maria's parents' names are not known from her marriage record and her death record has not yet been found.
An approximate year of birth is known from an 1860 census entry thought to have been for her which corresponded to the age of Maria Gesina on the passenger list of the ship Albert and to the age of Maria Gesina on the 1852 Wiste census. Maria died less than 2 years after her marriage so she would have no further documented presence in the US.
In support of this ID is the fact that the brothers (Herman, Johan Albert, Johan Bernard and Johan Wilhelm) of Maria Gesina born in 1843 all settled in Calhoun County and brother Lucas, who settled in St Louis, was also living in Calhoun County from 1862 to 1864. So at the time of Maria's marriage in 1863, all of the siblings were living in Calhoun County.
