Re: August Dorries of Clinton County, Il
The Dorries family of Breese, Clinton, IL are descended from 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.
They had two, maybe 3 sons:
Henry, b. 1831, Hamburg, Germany m. 1 Bernadina Blommendahl (step-daugther of Frerich Schleuter). m. 2 Sophia Lager 7/21/1887, b. 6/5/1838 Germany, d. 1/13/1913, Breese. Children: Henry, Matilda Elizabeth (my great grandmother), Fritz, Herman A. and William.
Maybe F.W. August Dorreis, b.4/3/1835, d. 6/13/1899.(I don't have a firm link)
Fritz, b. 2/11/1842, d. 12/25/1910, m. Sophia Wulze b. 6/20/1848 d. 5/1/1924. Son Harry? b. 12/5/1888, d. 6/10/1930. Daughter Rosea b. 12/12/1889, d. 7/28/1916.
That help any?
