Johann Cornies (1852-1915) - grandson of Peter Cornies (1791-1847)

Johann Cornies (1852-1915) was born in Ohrloff but eventually moved north to the Schoenfeld colony where he  served as Mayor for twelve years.  The picture below shows him with with first wife, Margaretha Klassen.

The picture behind the Cornies genealogy title above shows a portion of the roof of his home in Schoenfeld.  It reads "1907 Ivan Petrovich Cornies" or "1907 Johann Peter Cornies".  Two of his sons (shown below) emigrated to Canada with their families originally settling in Manitoba.  Subsequently, son Johann moved his family to British Columbia while son David moved his family to Southern Ontario.
