Wilhelm Zins married Johanna Elizabeth Stacken in 1867. Johanna was the daughter of Cornelius and Katherine Rademacher Stacken of Bocket, Germany. They had 11 children, including Cornelius (Nels), Anna Katherine (Kate), Anton, Adam (my great grandfather), Joseph, Peter, Henry, Nicolaus (died as a child), Elizabeth (Lizzie), Hubert, and Philip (died of Scarlet Fever at age nine). I think all children were born in St. Peter,MN. Anton Zins (1800), Wihelm's father came over in 1857 at age 57 from West Prussia (Luxemburg)with his wife Elizabeth Burgs Zins (1807). They sailed from Port of Antweys on ship Harrit Hoxie and arrived in NY on June 22, 1857. They traveled with five sons: John Hugo, Wilhelm, John Adam, John Bruno and Nicolaus. Anton parents were Peter Joannes Hugo Zins and Catharina Schutz Zins. Elizabeth's parents were Joannis Burgs and Catharina Werney Burgs. Anton's family settled in Nicollet County, outside St. Peter, MN. This is all the information I have. I hope it helps!
