Re: Henry Lewe / Anna Hillebrand Lewe
Yes.My ancestor is Frank Hillebrand(1851 – 1928)born in Cincinnati to Bernard and Bernardina (Dierckes)Hillebrand.Frank had 3 brothers and 4 sisters. ( Bernard/Ben,William E and Carl and Mary Schlagheck,Anna Lewe,Bernardina Luebbe and Emma Tieman)One of Frank’ssisters was Anna Hillebrand Lewe born in 1858 and married to Henry B Lewe in about 1878.Frank moved to Toledo in the late 1870s and Anna and her husband moved to Toledo in 1893.Henry was a cigar maker.Some ofFrank’ssiblingsmoved to Toledo and some stayed inCincinnati.I have a copy of a newspaper clippingfrom 1951 thatshows 5 generations of Stralls –AnnaHillebrand Lewe age 93, and Mary Strall, Cyril Strall, Francis Strall and Suzanne Strall, who is a baby. The photo is from the Toledo Catholic Chronicle. If not for the picture I would not have known the Strall’s were Hillebranddescendants. My dad's cousin sent me the clipping.
I have a couple interesting Hillebrand photosand some interesting genealogy info from Germany on the Hillebrands.Are you a Hillebrand descendant?There was a post in a Strall page I think by a person named Sarah Davis, but her email isno longer valid. Do you have a current emailfor her.I would be happy to share what I have on the Hillebrands.
