I am looking for Frank Henry Wink (my Great Grandfather) who married Anna Catherina
Inkman. A marriage license was issued in Adams Counnty, Illinois, but my Aunt Pearl had
the marriage in Ft Madison, Lee County, ILL (across the River?) where the Inkmans lived.
The date was 11 Sep 1882. Frank disserted the family a few years after his kids were born
in the early 1800s and we are all curious as to what other cousins we may have out there!
Their sons Frank Henry Wink, Jr, and Aloysius John Wink (my Grandfather) stayed with Anna.
My Grandfather AJ left Iowa for the area north and east of Yellowstone to get away from
Anna. Family stories say Frank Sr was justified in disserting his family as she was a
TRIP! Unfortunately, Anna and next husband Horace Sharp followed him. . . . . .
families are SUCH fun! ;-) Anyway, are there any Frank Henry Wink's climbing around
on your tree?
