I am searching for any descendants of these families whose roots are all in the Ostfriesland area of Germany. If anyone sees anything that looks familiar, I would like to hear from you and share whatever information I have.
My GGG Grandfather, Hinrich Harms Knock was born in 1760 and had a brother Hero. He had a daughter Taalke who married and had children; my GG Grandfather Harm, who I have found 2200+ direct descendants for; and a number of other children who did not survive long enough to marry. Harm died in Germany about 1848 and in 1857 my GG Grandmother Anna Ontjes(Bruuns) Knock and her children, some with spouses & children emigrated to America. They settled first in the Freeport, IL area, later moving the the Grundy County area of Iowa. From there some moved to the Lennox & Davis areas of SD.

My GG Grandfather(maternal) Ahldrich Menne Bunger was born in Ostfriesland about 1816 and had three sons who emigrated to America; Henry (my G Grandfather), Coert & Menne. I have not been able to locate any of Menne's descendants. He moved from Iowa to Kansas.

My GG Grandfather(maternal) Henderk Buus was also born in Ostfriesland in 1810.
