My grandmother was Mary Florence Sudkamp m. William Liedhegner. she was born Aug 6, 1894

Cora Sudkamp was her sister - full name Mary Cordula Sudkamp

Their other siblings were: Ernestine, Agnes, John,
I know there was also an Aurelia, Lillie, and Mamie who died young.

Their parents were John Richard Sudkamp and Elizabeth Pleimann.

My dad, told me that John fell from a carriage and hit his head and died. He lived downstairs, below Elizabeth, and remembers her having a heart attack. She was toasting bread in the oven, and they heard the thump, when she fell and died.. She was laid in their living room. They did not use funeral homes. My dad was young, I think around 5 yrs old at the time. He called her granny.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Vernand Pleimann and Mary Schweinjohann from the Fort Thomas area.

John was the son of Richard Sudkamp and Catherine Brinkman - both from Germany. Richard was born 1827, Catherine was born 1837. My records say they were from Dinklage
