Dorries of Clinton County, Il
Do you know all of the sons of Henry (Heinrich) Dorries b.11/2/1803, Brunswick, Germany, d. 3/24/1879, Breese, Clinton, IL and Dorthea Zinschlag b. 6/11/1800, Germany, d. 8/18/1880, Breese?
I am looking for the parents of Wilhelmina and Carolina Doerries who appear to be living with Henry Doerries in Clinton and DeKalb Counties, Illinois.But they do not appear to be his daughters...I am wondering if they are nieces.They were both born in Germany:Carolina in 1847 and Wilhelmina in 1854.They both married in DeKalb County, Illinois and settled in Story County, Iowa.FamilySearch has "John" as Wilhelmina's father.
Perchance, did Henry have a brother John whose daughters immigrated to Illinois?I would at least like to prove they are sisters.
