My Jenneweins also came from Abenheim, Germany. Johann and Anna Marie Jennewein left Germany in July 1847 to come to the U.S. They settled in Illinois in September 1847. They had 9 children born in Abenheim, Johann (b. 1832), Johann Georg, b.1834(died at birth), Frederick (b. 1834), Barbara (b. 1836), Thomas (b. 1838), Anna Maria Katharina (b. 1840), Maria Eva Katharina (b. 1842), Frank (b. 1845) and John Leonard (b. 1847). Another child, John Valentine,(b. 1852) was born in Howard Twp., Illinois, but died at birth. I am a descendant of the first child, Johann, who married Margaret Monaghan. Does any of this connect to your Jennewein family? Chris
