Hi, I'm trying to find my Cordes ancestors.They settled in Cincinnati.Johann Cordes married Maria Augusta Droop.They had eleven children: William John Cordes (b. 1871), John Dietrich Junior (b. 1874), Wihelmine Cordes (b. 1872), Charles Lewis Cordes (b. 1876), Margaret Cordes (b. 1878), Sophia Maria Cordes (b. 1880), Edward Cordes (b. 1882), Harry Frederick Cordes (b. 1885), Adolph Henry Cordes (b. 1887), Albert George Frederick Cordes (b. 1890), and Clara Marie Cordes (b. 1892).I'm sure someone out there is probably a relative.
Johann's father, Wilhelm Cordes, shows up on an 1880 census as the father of Johann.We think they came from Oldenburg, but we don't know which city.I'd also like to find out who the children were of each of the brothers and sisters of Harry Cordes.Harry was my grandfather's father.
