Louis C. GRAF and Ludwig Graf - Cincinnati, Hamilton Co, Ohio

Do any of these people sound familiar to anyone ??

Ludwig GRAF married a Bertha GLICKERT in Oct 1872 at Cincinnati, Hamilton Co, Ohio. I have had no luck tracing this Ludwig GRAF. Bertha’s parents were Adam GLUECKERT / GLICKERT and Kunigunda UNKNOWN, both born Germany. [GLUECKERT was previous spelling]

“Restored Hamilton County Ohio Marriage Records Supplement” [transcribed from Archdiocese records]:

Bertha GLICKERT and Ludwig GRAF, 24 Oct 1872, St. Louis Catholic Church, Cincinnati.

No record of another marriage to a GRAF for Bertha.

Louis C. GRAF and Bertha were residing in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co, Ohio when their son Harry C. was born.

“Hamilton County Ohio Birth Records 1874 – 1875 Vol 1, A – K”, page 166 [transcribed from Archdiocese records]:

Harry / Henry (documentation) GRAF Father - Louis GRAF, Cincinnati, shoemaker
Mother - Bertha GLICKERT, CincinnatiPlace - 682 Main St
Date - 19 Apr 1875
Attendant - C. Gobrecht

1880 Cincinnati census Bertha was a seamstress, divorced, Harry was 6 and John BENNERT listed as an adopted son, was 2. Father born in New York for both sons. [New Jersey was listed in family information passed down.] [John was using GLICKERT in the 1900 census.]

City directories for 1888 list Bertha as widow of Louis.

“Marriage Records Recorded in Hamilton County, Ohio – Marriages 1890 – 1894” [transcribed]

Joseph McCAFFERTY, Valie GLICKERT 08 August 1893 Cincinnati

1900 Cincinnati census lists Joseph and Bertha McCAFFRTY, and John GLICKERT son.

On the 1910 census Bertha GLICKERT was again listed as a widow.

Could the below the same Louis C. GRAF, father of Harry / Henry ????
