The 1870 census has a few more details: Vol 9, pg 542.
My notes indicate that "Christopher" Brode and Rebecca Korick were both born in Hesse Cassel, Germany. His occupation was 'laborer' and he could not read or write. Add Christopher (prob. born 1851) to the children.
Lewis (1865-1941) married Emma Jane Casey and they had nine children: Lewis N. (1891), Joseph T. (1892), Robert L. (1894), Elizabeth A. (1896), Theodore L. (1897), Margaret A. (1900), Ellen M. (1905), Oscar J. (1907), and Emma J. (1908). Lewis was primaily employed as a stonemason/bricklayer, and he had a reputation as a fisherman and fox hunter. He bagged his first deer at 72. He also played bass horn in the PC Band for 32 yrs. They lived at 208 Spruce St. in Tamaqua.
Ellen Mary Brode (1905-2000) married Raymond Morgans (1900-1966) and they had three children: Raymond (1925), Vanda (1927), and Robert (1932). Raymond and Vanda still reside in Tamaqua.
Vanda married Robert Nattress and they had four children: Robert (1948), Brian (1950), Vaughn (1956), and Judy (1960). I'm that Robert.
When I was actively working on the family tree, I focused on the Nattress side, mostly because it was simpler. As you can see, the Brode side is one big family. If you advise your basic line, I may have more info.
