I am researching the following family Surname that settled in the Freeport, Illinois area in 1873, FRANSSEN. Herman Johan Franssen b: November 3, 1833 in Hanover, Germany d: March 23, 1905 in St. Libory, Nebraska Herman married Martha Francis KUIPER in about 1860 in Germany and in 1872 they came to the United States first settling in Freeport, Illinois. They had 7 children;
1. Martha Franssen b: January 5, 1861 in Hanover, Germany m: Henry W. GERDES 2. John H. Franssen, Sr. b: May 31, 1865 Hanover, Germany m: Anna KUIPER 3. Herman Henry b: October 22, 1870 in Hanover, Germany m: Elizabeth ROEPKER 4. Henry b: October 3, 1873 in Freeport, Illinois m: Elizabeth ELLER 5. Joseph J. b: April 6, 1878 in Freeport, Illinois m: Mary MUELLER 6. William Herman b: July 18, 1880 in Freeport, Illinois m: Rose REOPKER 7. Anna Sena b: April 30, 1884 in St. Libory, Nebraska m: George BEHAN⁄Howard WEEKS.
Herman Johan and Martha lived in Stephenson County for approximately 7 years and sometime late in 1880 or early 1881 they moved their family to St. Libory, Nebraska (Howard County). In Nebraska they settled with other German immigrants who came from St. Libory, Illinois.
I know very little about their lives in Stephenson County and was hoping maybe someone would find my names familiar and be able to offer some information. I have tons of information on this family line.

Researching the Eli FRANKENBERGER family of Rock Grove Twp., and I would appreciate any help on the families of sons Joel and Eli FRANKENBERGER. Did they remain in Stephenson County past the 1850s-1860s? I have much information to share on Eli Sr,'s family members. Are there any printed marriage records that I could obtain some information on his daughters Louisa, Caroline and Nancy?

I am seeking information of the PENNICOFF families who migrated to Stephenson County from Union County, PA about 1846. I am particularly interested in The family of John and Mary Pennicoff who had a daughter, Harriet Matilda, born there in June of 1855. I don't know who were the parents of John and Mary. They also had other children born in Stephenson County before returning to Union County, PA about 1878
