I found some time back an interesting biography of John Henry Finck 1843-1881 that was extracted from the NY Times. This man had taken his own life. The article doesn't give alot of background information but it does list his parents as Jacob and Louisa Schaefer Finck and says they're from Germany
. His siblings Frederica, Louisa, William and Carolina...our Finck connection goes as follows: John Finck and Magdalina Hank had a som John F Finck who was born in Wurtemburg Germany on 12-19-1817. He married Catharine Fredericka Roff born 8-18-1834. They had a daughter Louisa Finck born 2-4-1866 in Alta Illinois. She married Henry E Bornsheuer who was born 11-19-1868 in Germany and from there comes our grandfather Charles Henry Bornsheuer. I can't prove it but I am nearly sure that I am on the right track and if your Thodore has the NY connection then this John Henry might have something to do with your line too. The article did say that the father had a brother Andrew and he had a nephew August Finck.
The article was posted by Tammie Collins. Have you seen it already and if not would you like me to post it so you could read it? Also where is your Rheinland-Platz located and how do you pronounce Finck-I hate to mention how I've been pronouncing it?
