Thole/ Cincinnati, OH
I am searching for information regarding Richard Thole.He also went by Diedrich or Johann Theodore.The last name is sometimes spelled Toelle or Thoele.He was born in northern Germany, perhaps in Neuenkirchen, near Osnabruck, ca. 1830.He married Anna Margaretha Wilken, daughter of Bernard and Tecla Wilken ca. 1860.Their children included:Herman Bernard, (married unknown) Theodore, Helena (married Ed. O'Boyle), Adelaide (became Sister Teresa Adelaide - a Sister of Charity) and Elizabeth (married John J. Fieber).There may have been others as all of these children were born in 1869 or later.This family lived in the West End of Cincinnati, always around Linn Street, and attended St. Joseph Church on LinnSt.
