GLORIA

I THINK WERE HERE!! DON'T MEAN TO SOUND LIKE AN IDIOT BUT I SPENT THE BETTER PART OF 6 MONTHS SEARCHING LAST YEAR FOR ANYTHING ON "GRAHE". MY MOTHER IS CHARLOTTE GRAHE (HER MAIDEN NAME). CHARLES ALOUYSIS GRAHE WAS HER FATHER. HE WAS BORN ON JULY 14 1890 - GIVE OR TAKE A FEW YEARS. HE DIED IN 1970. HE HAD A SISTER NAMED SOPHIE, WHO WAS A FEW YEARS YOUNGER THAN HE WAS. THE FATHER TO CHARLES AND SOPHIE WAS JOHN GRAHE - HE WAS BORN IN FRANFURT GERMANY. JOHN'S MOTHER WAS SOPHIE OR SOPHIA. AFTER THEY CAME TO THIS COUNTRY JOHN IMMIGRATED TO NEW YORK AND MET AND MARRIED ANNA MCKENNA. THEY WERE THE COUPLE WHO HAD CHARLES ALOUYSIS AND SOPHIE. CHARLE'S SISTER SOPHIE ALSO IMMIGRATED TO NEW YORK AND MARRIED A KNAPP. SOPHIE AND MR. KNAPP HAD SEVERAL CHILDREN - TWO OF WHOM WERE NAMED CHARLIE AND JOHANNA - DON'T KNOW THE OTHER NAMES. JOHN WHO WOULD BE MY MOTHER'S GRANDFATHER AND MY GREAT GRANDFATHER DIED IN EITHER 1926 OR 1927. THE ONLY OTHER INFORMATION I HAVE IS THAT SOPHIA (MARRIED TO JULIUS) USED TO BAKE AND SELL GINGERBREAD PEOPLE AS A STREET VENDOR - I THINK IN MARYLAND. DOES THIS MATCH ANY OF YOUR INFORMATION? I AM SORRY IF I HAVE'NT PRESENTED THIS IN A CONCISE FORMAT - I GUESS I WAS JUST EXCITED TO FINALLY FIND A GRAHE THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR. BY THE WAY I AM CHARLOTTE'S DAUGHTER, CHARLES GRANDDAUGHTER, JOHNS GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER AND SOPHIA'S GREAT GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER IF I AM THE GRAHE YOUR LOOKING FOR. HOPE THIS HAS BEEN HELPFUL AND WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

DISTANT COUSINS!

Vera,
I think we're related! Do you have any of your history documented? Lets see if I can go down my line, or up my line so to speak. Julius b.1823 and Sophia Elizabeth Grahe were my ggg-grand parents. They immigrated from Bremen, Germany in 1855 with their children Henry Christian b 24 June 1849;d 8 August 1925 (my gg-grandfather); John b.1852 (my gg-uncle);and Frederick b 1854. Once in the US they had additional children:Lizzie b. 1856; William Julius b. 1860; Julius Agustus b.1862; Maria Margaret b 1866; and Sophia Elizabeth b 1869.
Henry Christian Grahe married Fannie M. Shiver in about 1873. They lived in Maryland and had children:William J b1874; F. Keefer b 1875; Caroline E B1877; Fannie Virginia b1881 d 1922 (she was my g-grandmother);and Rose b 1883;They moved to Washington DC in about 1895.
Fannie Virginia Grahe married Robert Edgar Smith in about 1903. They lived in Washington DC and had children:Evelyn Melvina , my grandmother; Mary Elizabeth;Elsie Lee; Henrietta Ellen (my g-aunt Hennie lives in Florida and is 88 yrs young! and a son who died in infancy.
I would love to explore this further. we could share info if you like. You can email me at cushmand@msn.com I look forward to hearing from you. This has been a good day for Grahe lookups for me. I got the DC 1900 census today and found out a lot of dates I didn't know! and now I met you!

Gloria, I read your "Distant Cousins" message with great interest I am searching for Sophia Grahe born abt 1869 in MD married to Asaph Clarke Nov 25, 1890 in Walkersville, MD. Could your Sophia possibly be my Sophia?

Hi! Don't know this family but I am originally from Frederick. Cruising by MD message board and thought I would render this info. I have a Frederick phone directory, several yrs old but there are 2 Grahe's listed in Hagerstown, MD. If you e-mail me at Bbelford@gbso.net I will send them to you. Might help.
