Hello Cousin Debi I don't know if this message will reach you but hope so. Carl Marquardt is my great-great Grandfather. Ferdinand is my great Grandfather and John August is my Grandfather. Your info on Ferdinand and Augusta is correct.I may have other info that you do not have or vice-versa. Do you have the info put together by Augusta (Tudy Marquardt) Helwig? I received a copy of it from my parents years ago. Some of the copies need help but for the most part are readable. You are also in this info. Do you know the correct spelling for what appears to be Parchelin, Prussia (the location Carl is listed as being from on the Hamburg emmigration records?) Ny brother-in-law and I were just talking about that this evening. Please contact me if you receive this. Hope to hear from you. Thank you.
