I'm searching for records regarding the immigration of my ancestor, Hendrick Bensink. He was born in Zutphen, Gelderland, Netherlands on 3 August 1835, and he was married to Geertje Beintema on 28 October 1857 in Pella, Iowa, USA. His father was Gerrit Jan Bensink, born about 1805 in Zutphen and his mother was Beiken Stegeman, born 15 March 1815 in Kampen, Overijssel, Netherlands. Any and all information would be appreciated!

This link to familysearch gives a fairly complete alphabetical listing of all Dutch immigrants from 1848 to 1872 (I think) and your Bensink is not on it. I suspect they may have immigrated from before 1848.

I discovered today that his mother had remarried and they spelled her name incorrectly on the passenger list - he immigrated in 1847 with his mother and stepfather. Took a little more digging but finally found it!
