Sophia was the daughter of George Jessie and Maria Klevsaat, the granddaughter of Friedrich Christoph "Ernst" Klevsaat and Christina Sophia Luise Brahst, the great-granddaughter of Johann Christian Kleesaat and Elizabeth Catherine Neuendorf, and the great-great granddaughter of Sebastien Heinrich Kleesaat and Anna Sophia Catherine Kleesaat. The last couple mentioned are also my great-great-great-great grandparents, making Sophia and me third cousins twice removed.
