4. Investigation  about one family in the USA

The family name "Enneper"  is not so seldom in the USA. But you can be sure,  that
there is a connection with the German families "Enneper". The name is derived
from an old Farmhouse "Ennepe", firstly mentioned 1410 ( lease for a monastery
in Cologne). The house is situated at the small river " Ennepe" close by the town
Halver   (30.000 inhabitants), North-Rhine-Westfalia , Germany.

I shall show for the present one family branch in the USA:
We find  Enneper, Emil  arrived 1909 at Ellis Island, USA. His age was 53, so
that the year of birth was computed  1856 .  The former Residence was
Heidenoldendorf (town Detmold, Germany).
In the "German EUB Cemetery, Culumet County, Wisconsin, USA",  is his
tombstone: Emil Enneper   Birth: No. 6, 1856 - Death: May 8, 1938

his spouse: Louise Enneper (Aug 12th,1858-Jun 25th 1932).

She is also in this passengerlist of 1909 noted.

 The son was :   August Enneper    Birth: Feb 1895 - Death: Mai 21st 1959

 His spouse    : Ella Wesener,          (Jun 20th 1896 - 1959);

 the granddaughter : Beatrice Edna Ruth Enneper Behnke  (1922 - 2013)
(see internet: www.findagrave ...)

The roots in   Germany  :
Wilhelm  Emil  Enneper  is born in Herdecke (a town in North - Rhine - Westfalia , Germany; 
(see also : familysearch C96670-1) birth:  No. 6 1856.

His parents and grandparents you find in the lutherian Church register of Halver
(also a town inNorth - Rhine - Westfalia , Germany, about 30.000 inhabitants)

 The marriage was   June 21, 1850  :  now the original registration :
