Hello I´am searching about the brother of my great-greatgrandmother. His name was John Baptist Backes. He is
born 1843 in Auw bei Prüm as a son of Nickolaus Backes and his wife Anna Margaretha Pesch. Johann B. married Anna Gertrud Jenniges. She is born 1847 in Allmuthen, Germany, now Belgium in the eifel area, as a daughter of Mathias Jenniges and Anna Gertrud Knauf.
