August Josef Corzelius (b.28/11/1836 – d. 7/11/1901) married Thekla, the daughter of Johann Josef Gerhards and took over his father-in-law´s factory at Bergstraße 4, in 1874 or 1878. The first son of August Josef and Thekla Corzelius was August Corzelius, who married Maria Clementine Menningen on 7/10/1895 and founded his own company “A. Corzelius-Menningen” in 1910. He probably took over premises in Mittelstraße from Peter Josef Menningen (who was the unmarried brother of Maria Clementine Menningen). After the death of August Corzelius-Menningen in 1953, his sons August (jun.) and (F.)Paul (who married Cornelia, a daughter of Peter Eckhardt) took over the company. After the death of August jun. in 1963, Römerberg 18 eventually went to (F.)Paul and his son Hans. The company's name was changed to "Paul und Hans Corzelius" around 1971. Roger Corzelius, the son of Hans Corzelius took over the premises and since 1991 the company has been called "Roger Corzelius", has moved to Hillscheid and specialises in the production of stove tiles.
The other branch of the Corzelius family is: Aug. Jos. Corzelius (Inhaber C/Karl Johann Corzelius) / Werner Corzelius
