Gisi Normenga, about 1844--henk 06:38, 24 November 2012 (EST)

The image shows Nanninga, I think --henk 08:23, 24 November 2012 (EST) marriage 16 NOV 1871 --henk 08:07, 24 November 2012 (EST)

I looked on AlleGroningers for Nanningas from 1843 - 1845, and found no males with names beginning in 'G'.

If you look at the image associated with the birth record of the stillborn Nanninga from 1877, you see what looks like Anna crossed out. Curiously, there is an Anne born in Oldekerk on 29 Jun 1844 and listed as an emigrant in 1867. Might this be the right person? --Pkeegstra 13:22, 24 November 2012 (EST)

The only other male Nanninga known to Genlias born 1843-1845 is an Eisse from Ulrum. And he is not listed as an emigrant. But it sure would be nice to find some plausible candidate to be our Nanninga in the 1870 Michigan census. --Pkeegstra 20:10, 24 November 2012 (EST)

OK, we've accounted for Anne Nanninga, and it's pretty clear he's not the first husband of Jantje van der Veen or the father of Esther Staal/Nanninga. Any ideas? --Pkeegstra 06:25, 26 November 2012 (EST)

the possibilities are:

- the name was not Nanninga - when it was Nanninga, he wasn't a Groninger - he married in the States, so there must be a record somewhere - he died, so there should be a record of that

I searched Alle Groninger emigranten with a bolean search "N%" but no name looked familiair. so... I will think about it :-) --henk 06:57, 26 November 2012 (EST)--henk 06:57, 26 November 2012 (EST)

I believe Jantje's first husband was Eisse Nanninga (born 23 Jun 1844 in Ulrum). He died in Grand Rapids on 19 Oct 1874. Esther was born after his death, and may have actually been named after him (with her name appearing as "Easi" in the 1880 census). --Jennifer (JBS66) 08:18, 26 November 2012 (EST)

I think so too.he's not listed on the registered emigrants, but I can't find him, Though one of his sisters migrated to and may be more --henk 09:21, 26 November 2012 (EST)
