I found your information on Genealogy Wise (from about 2007). I read that you are interested in the Kassens family and their relations in the USA. We may be related, going back to the early 1800’s. Here are my ancestors:
Caspar Memering (b. Abt. 1815-1820 in Esterwegen)
married Thecla Kassens (b. in Esterwegen? Abt. 1820-1824)
married Abt. 1847? in Indiana, USA?, had 3 children
= = > Mary Elizabeth Memmering (b. 10 Apr. 1861, Vincennes, Indiana, USA)
= = > married Frank Henry Hoffman on 9 Nov. 1880, had 6 children
= = = = > Maurice Francis Hoffman (b. 27 Apr. 1890, Vincennes, Indianan, USA)
= = = = > married Marie Edwina Laube on 17 Jun. 1913, had 12 children
= = = = = = > Rosemary Hoffman (b. 12 Jun 1923, Vincennes, Indiana, USA
= = = = = = > married Donald Eugene Wendling on 18 Jun. 1949, had 4 children
= = = = = = = = > Frederic Joseph Wendling (b. 1 Mar. 1955, Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, USA (that is me)
There are many immigrants from Esterwegen who settled in the area around the city of Vincennes, Indiana (Knox and Greene counties in Indiana).
I am trying to find more information about the Caspar Memering from Esterwegen and his wife, Thecla/Thekla/Tekla Kassens. We have found a probable brother for Caspar, a Hermann Memering, who was born April 3 or 8, 1811 In Esterwegen and lived near Caspar in Indiana. I am hoping you may have some information for Caspar and Thecla.
If we are related, I would be happy to send you many more details on all of the people and children mentioned above (100+ descendents of Thecla Kassens).
Thank you for any information that you may be able to provide.
