Juergen (Jasper) Bennick wed Margaretha Catherine Rathjen in Germany. In 1869 they and their children (Maria, Wilhelmina "Minnie", Katherine M. "Kate", Christian "Chris" (kidnapped from hospital during Castel Garden immigration)and Henry. Catherine died at sea just before arriving in NY. Catherine's brother, Henry, met them in Dubque and escorted the family to Iowa co. I have lots of informatin on the Bennick daughters. Juergen and his son, Henry, were in 1880 US census living with Henry & Sophie Wiese. In 1895 IA Census he was living in Marengo and Henry possibly in Mound ?, Jasper, IA. Any help, especially from the Rathjen family lines, is greatly appreciated.
