Henke Family Genealogy Forum
My grandfather is a Hankes/Henkes, there have been variant spellings over the years, anyways my great-great grandfather Justus Henkes came from Hessen Cassel, Germany in 1844 with his father and mother Martin and Catherine Anne (Kuhn)Henkes and his 4 brothers and 1 sister. Now I don't know whether Nordhausen was part of Hessen Cassel but I'm trying to find out which town my family was from there, maybe we can help each other out on this, I have more info. on the henkes' if you'd like. E-mail me or just post another message.
