Henriette Joanne Wilhelmine Jonas

Henriette Joanne Wilhelmine Jonas was known to her family as Minnie.  There are two birth registrations on file in Manitowoc County and the State of Wisconsin for this child.  In 1870 and 1871 respectively, 15 and 16 years after her birth, her birth was registered.  She was born June 1, 1855 in the Two Rivers, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.  Sometime before 1889 she moved from the homestead in Two Creeks Wisconsin and moved East.  Based on the testimony of Fred Jonas for Henry Jonas’s probate in 1916, she moved to Cincinnati, Ohio.

That said Minnie Jonas would have been sixty-two years of age on the first day of June, 1916, if she were living; that affiant’s father and mother prior to their death lived with the affiant on his farm in the town of Two Creeks, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, where affiant has ever since resided and still resides; that affiant’s father died about twenty-seven years ago and affiant’s mother died about twenty-four years ago on said farm; that affiant saw his sister Minnie Jonas for the last time shortly before his father died, when she visited with the family on said farm in the town of Two Creeks.

That after affiant’s father died and about twenty-six years ago, affiant’s mother got a letter from said Minnie Jonas from Cincinnati, Ohio, which letter was answered; that when affiant’s mother took sick he wrote to his said sister Minnie at the address at Cincinnati, Ohio, which she had given in her previous letter but never received an answer, and that thereafter, both before and after affiant’s mother died, he again wrote to his said sister Minnie at said address but has never heard from her and never seen her since.

If anyone has any further information information on Henriette Joanne Wilhelmine Jonas who may have moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, I would be most interested in hearing from you.
