Herman & Margaretha Henke to Ill. 1853

I am looking for information on my Henke/Hinkey line. Herman Henke b. April 16, 1809 d. January 6, 1879 in Ottawa, Illinois and his wife Margaretha Clasbrummel b. March 4, 1813 in Verl, Westphalia, Prussia d. March 16, 1867 in Ottawa, Illinois came to America from Westphalia, Prussia in 1853 and settled in Ottawa, LaSalle County, Illinois. Their children are:
Conrad W. 'CW', 'Coon'
John Herman 'JR'
Christopher Herman
Henry H.
Antone Newell
Francis Henry
and possibly Martha
Several of the sons came out west, mostly to Nevada originally, in the 1800's to make their fortunes. All eventually left Nevada. The spelling of the Henke name was changed to Hinkey.
Would like to make contact and exchange information with any descendants of these Henke/Hinkeys.
My e-mail addresses are:
Randy Jones
