Those born before migrating to Russia list Mutterstadt which is in
the area, now, of Ludwigshafen, Rheinland-Pfalz [Palatinate]. Therefore,
I think it's safe to say they are related to
Catharina, nee Senk, Hoffer. If
there are parents who trekked as far as Russia, they are not listed
in Gllueckstal or Neudorf listed in Pixel Listings. So, I turn open my Stumpp
Migr. Bk. to p. 445 and find the following:
Jakob Senk, 1808, to Neudorf; RL: 28, I turn to the village
of Neudorf /Od. S. Russia in the same Stumpp Bk. to page 699 and flip
the pages looking for Jacob Senk. Page 704 under #102 it states
they migr. to Neudorf in 1808 plus the following:
Jakob Senk, 1812, 34, [that would mean he was b. abt 1778] 1813 "entwichen"
with his wife Margaretha, 34, and his children Barbara 15, Anna Elisabetha
13, Jakob 8, Johann Christian Karl 5 1/2 and Johann Peter Gregor 2
1/2. And, Stumpp tells us that he is linked the the Senk under
Page 712 I find under #216. There is listed a Peter Senk, 46,
[b. abt 1776] with his wife Luise, 44, and nephew Kyrill Senk, 19 and
niece Elisabeth Senk 21 [b. abt 1791].
There is no mention of where they came from in Germany.
I assume Senk might, also, be spelled Sink. There is a Sinkbein
who mgr. to Friedenstal / Bess. fr. Po. in 1834. I doubt there is any
relationship but listed here just in case. Sometimes "S" can be written as
a "Z". There is listed a Zent, Zenker and several Zink. I will list
Georg Michael Zink from Muehlhausen / Neiderbronn-Elsace [Alsace]who
migr. to Josefstal / Od. Od. ; RL:21
Andreas Zink, 1804, to Weinau / Tau; RL:26
Wilhelm Zink died. 9.11.1848 migr. fr. Hausen ob Verona/
Tuttlingen-Wu, 1808 migr. to Bergdorf / Od. RL: 36 then to Brienne / Bess;
PL:VI, 112; mentions a Johan in Glueckstal / Od who d. 6.1.1866 Brienne.
There is, also, listed a Zinkbein.
Let's jump to the passport section.
I found Wilhelm Zink which is also spelled Zing, age 41 years old; mig
from Wuerttemberg through Lemberg through Brody to Bergdorf/ Od with "diesem
reisen": Magdalena Weib and two children Rosina and Wilhelmina. Reached
Lemberg 3.12.1808. Reached Zloczow on 5.12.1808.
We'll have to turn to records in Mutterstadt and Muehlhausen to see
what we can find.
