My great grandfather was Henry August Thode b. 1870, He had one sister that we know of. Her name was Fredricka Thode b. abt. 1862 and she never married. Both were born (supposedly) in New York. We know Henry had at least one brother because a Martin Thode corresponded with my grandfather and Martin was a cousin. One of these siblings had a daughter named Hazel, that lived with Fredicka in New York. She had a mental disability. My dad said there was some kind of falling out amongst siblings.... Thats all I have right now. I may get my hands on a birth certificate for Henry. I'll keep you posted.
