My third-great-grandfather, Herman Rohde, was born in Mecklenburg, Germany about 1847. He married Elizabeth Ankert in Garfield Heights, Cuyahoga, Ohio, in 1872. They had two children there before moving to Washington state. The godparents of those two children were Carl Richter, Ludwig Rhode, Johanna Rohde, Mary Haeuser, and John Rohde. I have no other information about Herman; no birth date, no death date, no siblings, no parents. I assume the Rohde godparents are related but I have no idea how. Does anyone know who these people are?
