Death of Mrs. J. H. Cords, Long Time Resident of City
The many friends of the family were grieved yesterday to learn of the death, yesterday

morning, of Mrs. Dorothea Cords (nee Kuehl), wife of John Herman Cords, of 907 West

Koenig street.
Mrs. Cords was born in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, in 1852. At the age of 19 she was

married to John Herman Cords, a plasterer by trade. Mr. and Mrs. Cords imigrated to this

country about 1880, coming directly to Grand Island and making this city their home ever

since. Mr. Cords followed his occupation of plasterer and mason, though in the old country the

trade of plasterer is distinguished and specialized from that of a mason.
To this union there were born ten children, seven of whom survive the mother. They are

namely: Mr. Emil Cords, of Rockville, Neb.; Mr. Chas. Cords, Mrs. A. J. Windolph, Mrs.

Herman Suehlsen, Mrs. Charles Windolph, Mr. William Cords, and Mrs. William Seaman, all of

this city. One son and two daughers preceded their mother in death.
Mrs. Cords has been somewhat ill for the past six moths, a malady of the heart being the main

cause of death.
Besides the children she leaves her bereaved husband and one sister, Mrs. Detlef Sass,

residing near this city.
The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the residence. The mourning

family has the sympathy of a host of friends, the family being one of the older ones of Grand

Island, and being well known throughout the country.

I have no further information, I am not related.
