Lewe Family Genealogy Forum
Yes. My ancestor is Frank Hillebrand (1851 – 1928) born in Cincinnati to Bernard and Bernardina (Dierckes) Hillebrand. Frank had 3 brothers and 4 sisters. ( Bernard/Ben, William E and Carl and Mary Schlagheck, Anna Lewe, Bernardina Luebbe and Emma Tieman) One of Frank’s sisters was Anna Hillebrand Lewe born in 1858 and married to Henry B Lewe in about 1878. Frank moved to Toledo in the late 1870s and Anna and her husband moved to Toledo in 1893. Henry was a cigar maker. Some of Frank’s siblings moved to Toledo and some stayed in Cincinnati. I have a copy of a newspaper clipping from 1951 that shows 5 generations of Stralls –Anna Hillebrand Lewe age 93, and Mary Strall, Cyril Strall, Francis Strall and Suzanne Strall, who is a baby. The photo is from the Toledo Catholic Chronicle. If not for the picture I would not have known the Strall’s were Hillebrand descendants. My dad's cousin sent me the clipping.
I have a couple interesting Hillebrand photos and some interesting genealogy info from Germany on the Hillebrands. Are you a Hillebrand descendant? There was a post in a Strall page I think by a person named Sarah Davis, but her email is no longer valid. Do you have a current email for her. I would be happy to share what I have on the Hillebrands.
