Marie EINSTEIN married John Jacob THODE in Germany and had children--Edward, August, Henry, Carl, Katherine, Caroline, and Doris. Any hint of where Marie came from in Jo Daviess records? She was born @ 1803 according to family stories. John Jacob died in Germany. August came to Galena and brother Edward joined him later. Henry stayed in NY state (anyone have an idea where?), Carl died in Germany. Don't know about the girls. Marie and John J. may have been from near Otterndorf, S-H, Germany..as August is said to have been born in Otterndorf, and Edward in Hadein, Otterndorf. I think this is somewhere near the current Danish-German border. Any info on Marie, John Jacob, or rest of famiy wold be helpful.
