Thanks for reponding. I stand corrected. I was correct up to the Henry A.Thode/Lillian Jackson/Benjamin. My father just received a walking stick from his dying uncle, Theodore Thode. The patriarch we believed was August, was actually Theodore Thode. The walking stick was from Berlin. Henry A. was born about 1871. I estimate looking for a Theodore in Germany born in the 1840's.Can you help with this? Thanks for your time.
