My family is from St Louis and I am looking for any information on the Henry and Lena CORDES family. Henry and Lena had 6 children (Eda, Henry, Clara [all passed before 1910], William F b. 24 Nov 1885 d. 30 Aug 1941, Gustav H b. 8 Feb 1888 d. 17 Sept 1956, and Oscar b. Jul 1891).
The story in my family is that William F "Mike" CORDES owned a tavern (for sure 1913-193?). He married an orphan Marie BRUENNING and had 2 sons (William O b. Dec 3 1913 and LaVern JP (my granddad) b. 1 Nov 1920 d. 12 Feb 1998)
I would love any information, please :)
Thanks in advance!
