The PAF descendancy chart listing all known descendants of the Bender family that starts its history c. 1580.

The ender family that married into the Blaies family is from the village of Mühlhousen, Baden. Previously they were from Rettigheim, Baden, Germany (20 miles South of Heidelberg, Baden). My branch of the family settled in the Kimswick, MO area and in Chrondelet, South St. Louis, MO in 1854. My great grandmother Theresia Blaies, nee Bender, 1833--1898, settled in Mascoutah, St. Clair County, IL about 10 miles east of St. Louis with her husband, Jean Michael Blaies, 1822--1902, in 1864. They were married in Arnold, MO in 1856. Other Benders settled in O'Fallon, IL in the late 1800s. They were farmers in Germany, laborers in St. Louis, MO and farmers in Illinois.

The people of all countries are unique in one way or another over all others. What might be the one thing that countries and their people have more of than any other country or race? The international tribute to the Germans is their uniqueness of industriousness.
