I am seeking information on my gggrandfather Frederich William Thiede and his brother Herman Thiede who arrived in this country in 1862. Frederich and his wife Henrieta(Kirsten) and two children, Robert and Johannes,(John), settled with Herman in Carver County, Minnesota and then later in Stearns County, where they farmed. Herman, married Elizabeth Kopp, and settle at Shakapee, where he worked as a blacksmith. There was also a sister married to a W. Koener. who lived in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to Herman's obituary, he was a native of Behldorf Kreis, Answalde, West Prussia.
