The Nieweg Family Descendents in Illinois
A Virtual Cemetery created by: ziaref
Description: The surname Nieweg is not found in Illinois census records or cemeteries. However, Illinois is home to many descendents of one Nieweg ancestor, Caroline Louise Nieweg who married Hans Heinrich Freitag in 1845 in Germany, acquiring 8 Freitag stepchildren whose mother died in 1844. Conradine and Hans had another 5 children, all girls. Most of the Freitag children from the first marriage and Conradine's oldest daughter, Louise Caroline Sophia Freitag, found their way to Minier County Illinois. Minier County Illinois has an abundance of Freitags descended from Hans Heinrich Freitag, but none of them are blood relatives of Niewegs. The Nieweg connection is through Conradines oldest daughter, Louise Conradine Sophia Freitag, who married Heinrich August Kuhfuss. There is a single Nieweg record in Illinois, the marriage of Conradine Louise Nieweg's older brother was Heinrich August Nieweg (known as August H. Nieweg) and Hannchen Louise Kuhlmann (Illinois marriage record lists her as Hannah Coleman.) The Nieweg couple settled in Maries County, Missouri before the 1860 census, along with two younger Nieweg sibblings, Johann Christoph "Chris" Nieweg, Jr. and sister Johanna Charlotte Nieweg Cordsmeyer. Hannchen's niece, Julia Rhodovi of Minier County, Illinois married Johanna Charlotte's son, Gustav Cordsmeyer in Maries County, Missouri. Their union produced many Nieweg-Kulmann descendants in Maries County, Missouri, all named Cordsmeyer.
