I have a request from a relative in Speicher that is trying to help a Thiel relative locate Thiels in Wisconsin - specifically Milwaukee. If anyone knows of any Thiels in WI, I'd appreciate it!
Information is as follows:
Thiel, Nikolaus born 15 April 1861. Immgrated to Milwaukee WI in 1882. He was married and had 6 children - 4 boys and 2 girls. He worked in a brewerey in Milwaukee. Speicher Family (name of Blum)had contact with Nikolaus until 1925. Last city he lived in was Milwaukee WI.
He had 5 brothers who stayed in Germany. Brothers were Micheal born 27 08 1844; Matthias born 22-07-1847, Jakob born 20-10-1849, Peter 20-07-1851, and Johann born 30-11-1856.
