The first batch of our Most Wanted has been accomplished (partially). Some of Fritz's siblings have been identified, including an important one, which identified that he had 6 children. The tree is updated (March 3, 2011) to reflect lots of new family in this area. Working with a descendent of one of the children, we are finally able to welcome them as a connection to this Wiening family.

There are a lot of "same name" people out there, and, same time frames. Searching for the facts to put them into the proper tree has been, and will be, a challenge.
Don't forget the multitude of spelling variations, the spelling/transcription on original documents will amaze you.


* A child, Rudolph Wiening, born West Hammond abt May 30, 1898.
Died: May 30, 1899. Death Cert, no parents listed.

* A child, Clara Wiening, born West Hammond abt Dec. 1895.
Died: Oct 9, 1898. No parents listed.

*A Wiening child, male, born West Hammond, March 28, 1899.
No child name, no parents listed.

*A Richard Wiening, son of Alfred. Aunts Helen & Louise. West Hammond.
Perhaps Richard has 2 children, last known location: Florida.

*Via a passenger list, 1862, to Illinois, a possible son of Joseph/Sophia?
C.H. Wiening 34 (son)
Mine 32 (wife)
Sophie 9
Carl 7
Mine 5
Stine infant
Sophia Mother 52

NOTE: This list is valid. The departure was from Hamburg on 1 Oct 1862 and arrived in NY 17 Nov 1862. The ship, Sir Robert Peel, then sailed to Illinois.
*A possible brother, or son, of Joseph Wiening?
Anton Wenning b: 1832? d: Chicago: 1900
Married: Gertrude Harth, Aug 25, 1870, Will County, IL

*The Christ Wiening/Alwine family in Wisconsin has "some potential" due to the time frame, and, his father Joachim's family.
So far, there is NO PROOF that this family belongs in our tree.

*Another Henry Wiening/Mary in Chicago is questionable. Attempts to contact researchers have failed.

*Vague results want to link some Wiening from Illinois, to Ohio, Kentucky, and Colorado. (Colorado has our Wiening family.)
I have been too busy to confirm further findings on these names.

If you are a Wiening chasing names in Chicago, there may be a connection here.
If you are a Wiening that has ancestors data, and are looking for the American
connection ...... this may be what you are looking for.
