During the mid-1600's, I can only find mention of two WINDHORST / WINDHORST men living in Lesumstotel. They were Albert WINTHORST / WINDHORST and Henrich WINTHORST / WINDHORST. Albert and Henrich may have been brothers. I have figured their approximate years of birth by using their ages that were recorded on a 1682 list of men eligible for military service. However, I have found that the ages on this list can be off by as much as five years. The approximate year of birth for Henrich would be 1622, and for Albert 1634.

CHILDREN OF ALBERT WINDHORST
CHILDREN OF HENRICH WINDHORST
There was an Anna WINDHORST who married Carsten SCHRÖDER, of Ihlpohl, on 03 September 1698, in Lesum. After his death in 1700, she married Dirich KÖSTER, on 03 February 1701, also in Lesum. On the record of her marriage to Carsten, Anna is listed as the daughter of Henrich WINDHORST. However, I have not found Henrich having a daughter Anna. Records do show that Albert WINDHORST had a daughter Anna, and this very well could be her. This is a puzzle that I would like to be solved, as Anna was my ancestor.
Carsten and Anna had a daughter Maria SCHRÖDER, born in August 1697. Dirich and Anna had three children: Martin; Albert; and Gretje.
