Dear Ms. Norris,
My GGrandfather Clause Thode came to America from Germany in 1866 on the ship "TEUTONIA". It had sailed from Hamburg, Germany. He came from Haindorf-Schleswig, Germany and was born August 10, 1845. He settled in Bunker Hill, IL.
His wife, Charlotta Wohlert, came to America from GErmany in 1867 and they were married in IL. She was born April 30, 1848. They had 10 children of which 3 sons eventually moved to central Kansas (Louis, Herman, and Albert). The rest stayed in IL. Mostly around the Bunker Hill area. Henry became an artist and went to Chiago to live and work. John worked the farm. Charlotta and 2 children died in 1903 from a Scarlet Fever epidemic in Bunker Hill.
