How (Not) to Find a Missing Heerdink (Part 2) — 7 Comments

  1. Nice work and way to stick to it! Her (potential) maiden name reminds me of the Defenbaugh trash company. There is yet another misspelling for you to check! I have a family name with a thousand spellings, too. So frustrating. But you are a step closer to your answers!

    • Thanks for the words of encouragement, Heather! I will feel a whole lot better once I definitively link Mary to a family. But for now I’ll settle for figuring out where the happy couple was living after they married!

    • Hello. I noticed that you were looking for Heerdinks in Indiana. I am part of a big family of Heerdinks in Evansville, Indiana. There aren’t too many Heerdinks in the world. I was wondering if our family lines cross.

      • Tim,

        Thanks for letting me know about your Heerdinks! Sorry it has taken so long for me to respond – playing catch-up after my trip to Ft. Wayne last week has me running a few days behind.

        I believe we MUST be related, because all of my Heerdinks are pretty much from the Evansville/Mt. Vernon area and didn’t stray too far from there.

        I would love it if you would send me an email (lostancestors AT gmail DOT com) so we can compare notes. I look forward to hearing from you!

        ~Jenny
