looking for information on my Gaede line, I have info that has come from when my great-grandma and her sister compiled a family history. My first known Gaede had an unknown first name. He was born before 1813 in Kenzlin, Demmin, Pomerania. He married Helmina Sophia Maria Wassmund in 1827, and he died in 1837, presumably in Germany.
Helmina Maria Sophia was born December of 1807 in Zawensdorf, Germany, and came to this country and died in Dundee, IL in 1890.
To my knowledge, Mr. Gaede and Helmina Maria Sophia had at least 3 children. One was Ludwig Frederick Immanuel Gaede, born August 8, 1939 in Kenzlin. He married Frederika Hirsch in 1861 in Hohenmaker, Demmin. He died in 1921 in West Chicago, Illinois. The second child was Frederike Gaede, born in 1835. She married a John Schultz, prior to immigrating to the Dundee, IL area. The third known child was listed only as an unknown male. I don't know if it was an infant who died, or what.
Any information or contacts regarding this family would be appreciated.
