Nachkommen von Martin Cornies version 20120925.pdf

A new updated document has been placed in the Documents Folder that outlines the complete Cornies family tree.  This document is called Nachkommen von Martin Cornies version 20120925.pdf and is available for download.

This document originates from Johann Cornies in Germany and is very comprehensive.  A lot of time and effort has been devoted to creating this document and keeping it current.  Thank-you very much Johann.  Vielen Dank!!

Boris Feinstein

Documentation was received from Germany that outlines the lineage of Boris Feinstein. He was born in East Siberia on June 5, 1941 and can trace his lineage to the Cornies family through to David Johann Cornies (1794).

A document has been place in the Documents Folder that traces his lineage.  That document is called Vorfahren von Boris Feinstein.pdf and is available for download.

David Davidovich Cornies

In a previous post, Johann Cornies of Germany found information about this person and we were wondering how this David Davidovich Cornies fit into the Cornies family tree.

Since then, Johann received information indicating this person is likely the grandson of David Heinrich Cornies (no. 50 in the document Nachkommen von Martin Cornies version 20110313.pdf).  Susanna Cornies, the daughter of David Heinrich Cornies, wrote her autobiography.  An excerpt from that autobiography was forwarded from her great-granddaughter to Johann Cornies in Germany.  It reads as follows:

"Mama schreibt. Mein Leben von Kindheit:

Ich, Susana Cornies, war geboren 1879 Molosch Dorf Orloff. Mein Vater 1. Sohn von Heinrich Cornies 1833 ein David. Meine Mutter eine Susana Reimer Tochter des Klas Reimer von Orloff. Meine Eltern hatten 1878 Hochzeit.

Es ging uns dort ganz gut, es war drock, aber wir jung und stark, und der Herr gab Segen zu unserem Schaffen. Haben dort 8 Jahre gewohnt und Er 7 Jahre. Dann zog Er nach Омск auf dem Onkel Jakob Cornies sein Land. Der hatte dort 200 Desetin Land und mein Br.

Weiter geht die Erzählung von Ihrem (Susana Cornis ) Bruder Johann ( Hans ) Cornies,geb.1891..."

English translation:

"Mother writes - My life from childhood:

I, Susanna Cornies, was born in 1879 in Orloff.  My father was David, son of Heinrich who was born in 1833.  My mother was Susanna Reimer, daughter of Klas Reimer from Orloff.  My parents were married in 1878.

1.  I was the oldest daughter born Feb 28, 1879
2. Brother David was born on Jan 21, 1880
3. Sister Mariechen born 1882 and died 1890
4. Sistern Lena born 1884 and died 1885
5. Brother Nikolai born 1885 and died after 3 weeks old
6. Brother Heinrich born 1888 and died after 3 weeks old
7. Brother Johann born 1891 and was taken in 1935 and died in 1937 in prison
8. Brother Heinrich born 1894 and was taken in captivity and nothing more was heard from him as of 1951

From 1879, my life was tranquility and peace with my loving parents and my 3 brothers David, Hans (Johann) and Heinrich.  I enjoyed my youthful years and  attended church with my parents for prayer and bible study.  I had a good life. It was heavenly to believe and be baptized in the church in Kalinowa.

My parents settled in Memrik on Apr 30, 1885.  We were children.  I was 6 years old.  My mother was ill but father was healthy and strong.  He always worked hard.  There were good and bad days.
My dear father died in  1919 at the age of 62 years, 1 month and 8 days.  My mother died on May 15, 1920 of stomach cancer. She was 65 years, 3 months and 9 days old at the time.

My brother David married in October, 1903 to Tina Peters.  He lived then by my parents.  In 1906, they moved to Конжонково after we, in 1905, moved there to wheat country.  It went well there, it was dry but we were young and strong and the Lord blessed our work.  We lived there 8 years and my brother 7 years.  David then moved to Омск (Omsk) on to his Uncle Jacob Cornies land.  There he had 200 desiatina (1 desiatina = 1.092 hectares) and my brother David received 50 desiatina.  Together with his uncle, they had to get livestock and people to help on the farm.  That was in the fall of 1911 when he built there.  He had 2 sons and 1 daughter. David was born in 1906, Hans in 1908 and Suse in 1910.   Lena and Hein were born in Омск.

David died in February, 1915 and his wife came back in the spring with her children to her parents place.  She then married Gerhard Rogalski from Nordheim in 1920.  He had five children and she had three children. Two children died of scarlet fever; Hans in 1919 and Hein in Feb 1920.

Gerhard Rogalski died in the fall of 1935 and she had to leave with her family in 1941.  Because of the war, everyone had to move to Siberia.  In 1944, she died of starvation.  The two children Susa and Lena remain with their children.  The men were taken and disappeared without a trace.

The story of Susanna Cornies and her brother Johann, born 1891 continues from here...."
