Would appreciate contacts for anyone concerning links to the Marquardt/Marquette families in Pendleton County, Kentucky (City of Falmouth, Village of Short Creek) who departed Hamburg, Germany in mid 1850s. John Marquardt died in Germany. His widow, Christina Fass Marquardt (or, perhaps, Fredericka) married Frederick Clinger and emigrated with her son, John Julius (J. J., my greatgrandfather) and stepson Harmon Clinger to New York, then Cincinnati, then to Pendleton County in Northern Kentucky. Her other children, who reportedly emigrated before their mother, were Henrietta, who married a Dahlenburg, Amelia, who married a Damien (?), and, perhaps, Peter.
