Cornelius Schmidt, born 1852 Russia; died 1915 Kansas
Posted by: Cathleen Hall (ID *****7334) Date: October 11, 2010 at 05:51:42

Seeking to connect with descendants of this family.

Father: Cornelius Schmidt, born 29 Sept 1852 in Russia; died 25 July 1915 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas
Mother: Helene “Lena” Boese (Base), born 2 Dec 855 in Russia; died 18 June 1930 in Greensburg, Kansas

Their children include (these are the children that made up the family in America):

1) Maria, born 1885 in Russia (died sometime before 1895 in the states)
2) Peter, born 4 Sept 1880 in Russia, died 17 June 1957 in Kansas, married Anna Unruh
(may have already been in contact with some descendants through the Unruh
3) Agnes, born 3 Nov in Pawnee Rock, Barton, Kansas, died 4 July 1960 in Larned, Kansas, married David T. Smith on 28 Sept 1904 in Kansas
4) Amos, born 26 Nov 1888 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 3 Aug 1970 in Great Bend, Kansas; married 1st – Augusta Rodenberg on 21 June 1919 in Kansas; 2nd Nellie Whipple on 17 Nov 1963 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas
5) Ely, born 25 Sept 1890 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 6 Oct 1963; married Mary Redger on 30 July 919
6) Ella, born 9 Nov 1892 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 15 June 1977; married 1st John Unruh 12 June 1911; 2nd Clarence Smith 13 June 1962
7) Laura, born 7 Nov 1895 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 22 Feb 1976; married Peter Unruh on 7 Sept 1916; married Peter Unruh on 7 Sept 1916 in Greensburg, Kansas
8) Danny, born 7 Nov 1895 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 1906 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas (obviously no descendents)
9) Jacob “Jake”, born 5 Mar 1898 in Pawnee Rock, Kansas; died 16 June 1976.

Particularly interested in finding out if the Cornelius and Helene family record has been updated since 1962 and where I might obtain a copy if so. I am a granddaughter of Laura and Peter. If it has not been updated, I am interested in undertaking that task and need to locate as many descendents as possible in order to do so.
