Notes: Most of this information was compiled from the Spenge record books, and there may be omissions, and there are sure to be errors -- the record books are old, some pages are missing, most entries are hard to read. It is interesting that these record book microfilms are available in America only; they are forbidden for distribution in Europe.

Of interest is a Dickenhorst family in Michigan. On the 1920 Ottowa, Michigan census are: Charlie and Anna Dickenhorst with children Minnie, Clarence, Lewis, Raymond, Rensena and Albert -- Charlie b. 1878 in Michigan. Holland, Michigan birth records for this family (e.g., Maukie Dickenhorst was born to Aru Dickenhorst and Francina Deekenhorst in 1872) -- and other children's names of Hermanus and Jan -- confirm this is not a German family; both Arie/Aru and Francina Dickenhorst/Diekenhorst are listed as being born in the Netherlands, and likely about 1830s/1840s. This is likely also the source of the Lawrence Dickenhorst from Kewanee, Wisconsin record of a soldier killed in the Civil War (Private Co. A., 27th infantry; enlisted Aug. 15, 1862; killed at Jenkins Ferry, April 30, 1864); he is likely a Dutch relative of Arie, and these may even be a misinterpretation of the more common Diepenhorst Dutch name.
