I recently found new information on John Thiel. He was born in Trier Germany on March 25, 1868.He immigrated to the USA in 1884 (age 15) and settled in Allegheny County Pittsburgh (as far as I know).He married Anna E. Meyers on October 10, 1893 in Allegheny County, and had four children (John A., Henry E., Margaret, and Sarrah).
His wife Anna Meyers was born in Allegheny County, PA on July 28, 1869.
John was a laborer in the Mills.
Any infromation on John's father and mother or siblings would be appreciated!
