Would like any information about Marie or Maria B. Ostendorf, m John Taphorn, Sr. As far as I know they had three children, John Taphorn, Jr., Marie Francis Taphorn, b 29 July, 1898 Cincinatti, OH (my grandmother) and Lillian Taphorn, m. Maurice Hufford. I do not have any information on Marie's family history. According to my aunt, Marie was born in Alsace-Lorraine. I have found two John Ostendorfs in the 1870 Kentucky Census, Kenton County, which is south of Cincinatti across the river. Don't know if there is any connection. Any information would be appreciated.
