Conrad Cornelius spent a number of years with his parents and as, a young man married Amelia 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.
