Looking for any interested cousins with which to share genealogy info on our ancestors ANTONE WILHELM BOEX (1833-1904)and his second wife, MARGARET O'HANLON (1845-1903), who were married in the Cinncinati area and made their way to DePere, WI, and raised their family.
Antone had come from Eindhoven, Netherlands with a very ill wife, Henrietta Hoefnagels Boex, who died within a year of their settling in Cinncinati. Antone's hired domestic, MARGARET O'HANLON, stayed on to care for the newborn and the other children and when her family demanded she return home because of the scandal of living in the house with a widower, Antone offered marriage. They had children together and were said to have grown to love one another with deep devotion.
