Searching for any info I can find about Theis family members (may also be spelled Theiss)
My g grandfather George Theis born 12 May 1853 in possible Alsace-Lorraine. His parents names were George Theis and Catharine Nagle (Nagel??). I am not sure of any siblings of my g grandfathers.
George Theis married Maria (Mary) Breit circa 1875 in Germany. They had a total of approx 13-14 children. 5 of them known to me at this time born in Germany and 7 known to me at this time born in US (New York City).
born in Germany are: Hannah Theis - circa 1885 John Theis March - 1876 Catharine Theis - circa 1877 Max Theis - Sept 1878 George Theis Jr - 13 January 1882
born in NYC are: Josephine & Joseph Theis (twins) - March 1889 Elizabeth Theis - 3 April 1890 Julia Theis - circa July 1891 Joseph Theis - circa Aug 1895 Helene Theis - my grandmother, from what we have she was born Feb 1896, but cannot be right as Joseph was born Aug 1895 William Theis - 9 July 1902 Anna Theis - unknown
William Theis may still have a son in his mid 60's (Name is William as well) still living, and a good possibility in NYC. Max Theis may have one daughter Hazel still living in Arizona, and Elizabeth Theis has a son and daughter (Sister Elizabeth Michaels and Fred Michaels) both living in Boston.
IF any of these names sound familiar please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
