Descendants of Heinrich Cornies (b. 1806)

More pictures have been provided from the family archives of Joyce Cornies (no. 205* and no. 335* from the document Nachkommen von Martin Cornies.pdf).  

The father of Joyce was Peter Cornies (no. 75) who married Katharina Fast.  Peter Cornies was the son of Aganetha Cornies (no. 21) and Johann Cornies (no. 55).  It may be interesting to note that  Aganetha married her cousin’s son Johann.  Aganetha’s brother was Heinrich Cornies (no. 17).  Photographs of this Heinrich Cornies can be found in the previous post.  Joyce’s family archives included another photograph believed to be of this same Heinrich Cornies.  The photograph is marked as Heinrich Cornies, Nov 21, 1830 – 1908.  The front and back of this photograph are shown as it represents an identification card.  The Cyrillic writing on the back reads “Italian Photography and Drawings Paolo Baker Nevsky Prospekt, house # 14 In St. Petersburg”.

Two additional photographs were provided.  The people in these photographs can’t be identified.  Perhaps there are other readers who may be able to identify these people.  If so, please feel free to leave a comment.

It appears Peter Cornies (no. 75) and his cousin Heinrich Heinrich Cornies (son of no. 56) both married sisters being Katharina Fast and Justina Fast respectively.  Furthermore, I've been informed that Heinrich's brother Johann (son of no. 56) also married a sister being Maria Fast.  A photo of  Heinrich Heinrich Cornies, his wife Justina and their daughter Maria are believed to be in the following photograph.

*  Joyce Cornies is duplicated in the document since her paternal grandparents are both from the Cornies lineage.


  1. Thanks for this informative documentation.

  2. Johann Cornies of Germany speculates that the picture of Heinrich Cornies is not the same person as those shown of Heinrich Cornies in the previous post.
