Thanks, I agree yours look less promising than some.

willson/wilson family
I'm trying to figure out where my husband's family fits in with various Wilsons in Tennessee, Indiana and MO. His great grandfather was Calvin Willson/Wilson who was born 21 Jan 1853 in Henry Co IA and died 7 July 1925 in Lexington, Lafayette Co MO. He had siblings Lucretia, Wm. H., Sarah, Berry and Amos Jasper. Their parents were Jeremiah "Jerry" Willson (1819-20 TN or VA) and Elizabeth Richardson (June 1820 prob TN); they were married 29 Apr 1840 Monroe Co IND. The family, minus Jerry, settled in Morgan and Miller Counties in MO; spent some time in Phelps and Dent Co; Elizabeth & Amos J were in Edgar Co IL in 1880. They intermarried with Hedrick (IND, Bates Co MO, Morgan Co MO, Ford, Purl that I can think of. Have collected all kinds of interesting Willson/Wilson info but can't actually make a connection. Suspect Jerry's father was Moses...

fannie (wilson) main #106748055
Well, I couldn't even see the message I left for you, but after looking at your records I figure your interest was in the Main family while mine is the Willson/Wilson family and I'll never unravel them! Since you had posted her picture I was probably hoping you could fill in some Wilson info but now suspect that what you put on the memorial is what you have. Thanks for responding, anyway, sorry I left off memorial #.

William Sherman
Thank you so much for posting the photo of Sgt William Sherman. Your efforts mean so much to the survivors of the Jumping Mustangs who served along with William. All of the 409 young men, serving in Companies A-E from 1965-1971 who gave their lives in Vietnam are remembered during the annual reunion. Also William's name is engraved on the Vietnam Wall panel 028W003
Bless You,
Sue Rice

RE: Engaman vs. Engamann
Gerry, I noticed that you DID add some details to Mary D. Bruckerhoff for me. Thanks! But, I'll be picky today.

Since all the Engemanns buried at St. Anthony's Cemetery are from the Warren/Franklin Counties area, they ALL spell their names with 'nn'...so, parents of Mary D. Bruckerhoff...her mom's name would have it as 'Engemann'...thanks again.

RE: Engaman vs. Engamann
One 'n' or two 'nn' is a good question and the answer is not seen in print. Conjecture. It's a history answer. Those Germans who settled on the west side of MO had to protect their families (border wars of Civil War, guerrilla fights, bandits, etc.). The 1860's-1900 was a rough time for any immigrants in western MO.
My ancestors wanted to be known as American and all who settled in Germantown, Henry County dropped the German spelling to avoid attention during those years.

My ancestors who remained in the German belt (settlements near St. Louis, MO) had no immigrant pressure to change their names; they kept the double nn spelling and felt no fear about their German heritage. So, we are cousins, same blood lines, same ancestors.
BTY, Engeman has two e...
Thanks for your interest in how this happened. BTY, other families from Henry County, such as Sickman, Hillerman, Hoffman, have the same nn cousins in the St. Louis area of Warren and Franklin Counties. Same thing happened to them.
