Gotlieb Thiele b.1839, wife Amelia b.1845, lived Brown Co., WI
I have an original postcard photograph of two elderly people, who after research appear to be Gotlieb and Mary Thiele.The photo is on a postcard mailed (with a 1 cent stamp) from DePere, WI on Dec 31, 1929 signed by Helen Thiem, mailed to Miss Julia Kuchenbecker in DePere. The back of the postcard says in part: “…… Grandma Thiele passed away Sunday forenoon ……… Grandma had a bad cough and the flu……”I’d like to get the photo back to descendants or family members. The elderly people picture look to be in their 70s.
I found the people identified on the postcard to be Helen Thiem (age 17 in 1920 census lived in Brown Co., WI, dau of Rudolph Thiem and wife Mary, who was age 48).This Mary, born in 1872 was the same Mary Thiele, age 9 in 1880 Brown Co. census, daughter of Godliep (age 40) and Mary Thiele (age 34).In 1900, Gotlieb Thiele was age 60, born Germany Sept 1839 – living in Morrison (Brown Co.) WI with wife Amelia, age 55, born May 1845.Julia Kuchenbecker (whose picture I also have) was born Nov 1888, dau of August & Hulda Schmidt Kuchenbecker, and lived in Brown Co. in 1900 census.I believe Hulda and Amelia may have been sisters.
