Conrad Cornelius, an early settler, was born in Germany, the son of Isaac and Appolonia Cornelius, who brought him to this country with their two other children when he was seventeen, taking up their home at Grandville, Ozaukee County, Wis. Milwaukee, eleven miles distant, was still a small village and the family experienced all the privations and crudeness of pioneer life, living in a log cabin in the woods, clearing the land gradually, and in time building up a good farm. Conrad Cornelius spent a number of years with his parents and as a young man married Ameilia Hentschel. In 1860 he moved the family to Sheboygan County, where they lived the balance of their days. Four children, two sons and two daughters, survived them. L.G. Cornelius, the younger son, still lives in Sheboygan County, which he has served six years as registrar of deeds.
