My family is from St Louis and I am looking for any information on the Henry and Lena CORDES family. Henry and Lena had 6 children (Eda, Henry, Clara [all passed before 1910], William F b. 24 Nov 1885 d. 30 Aug 1941, Gustav H b. 8 Feb 1888 d. 17 Sept 1956, and Oscar b. Jul 1891).

The story in my family is that William F "Mike" CORDES owned a tavern (for sure 1913-193?). He married an orphan Marie BRUENNING and had 2 sons (William O b. Dec 3 1913 and LaVern JP (my granddad) b. 1 Nov 1920 d. 12 Feb 1998)

I would love any information, please :)

Thanks in advance!

Yes, he did, at 1123 Salisbury. His MO death cert. and the 1937 STL City Directory says that he was in the tavern business, and lived above at 1123a with Marie C.

The Social Security Death Index lists a Percy R. Bugger, 7/25/1939-11/6/2007, d. Boone, Boone Co., Iowa.
You might send for a copy of the obit, if any, to the local public library.
