I'm looking for information on John F. Steffes and Catherine Steffes who lived in Blue Island (Cook County) around 1880. There were five children in 1880; Bernert (17), Catherine (called Cate 14), Frances Sarah (Fanny 11), Fred (8), and Susan (5).
I am related by Fanny, who married Andrew Grant Flickinger (from Kentucky), and later lived in Santa Cruz, Ca. Catherine was Aunt Cate (no married name) from Chicago.Bernert/Bernhard and Fred show up in the 1900 Census, but nothing later.
Bernert/Bernhard married Sophia (maiden name unknown)and had 8 children from 1891 to 1900 (Suzie, Maria, Anna, Catherina, Frank, and Helene).Fred married Frida (maiden name unknown) and stayed in Blue Island.
Can anybody give me some information on these folks and where they went after 1900.Thanks
