Wendele Forum Posting - Cindy Fluri, 27 Jul 2005 Looking for descendant and ancestors of Henry D WENDELL, H 6 July 1866 - 15 Feb 1946& Whelemenia E. unknown 7 Oct 1860 - 27 Dec 1931. They had alot of sons,still working on the son's. Have information on George W. & Edward. Three daughters Marjorie, 1921-1921 Emma Elizabeth (my Great Grandmother) &Wilhelmina (Aunty). Great Great Grandmother Whelemenia only spoke German. They lived in Banner, Iron County, Missouri. I am looking for the other brothers, descendant and ancestors of Henry & Whelemenia. I know that they were in Indiana and Illinois at sometime before coming to Missouri. From stories I remember as a child Herny was from Germany; I just dont know if he came as an adult or with his family. Any help at all would be appreciated. If anyone has any information on this family please contact me @ rcfluri@sbcglobal.net Geography Notes:
