Wilhelm WIEDLE - Baden-Baden, Germany to Illinois, 1852
Wilhelm "William" Frederich WIEDLE was born January 11, 1836 in Baden-Baden, Germany and was the son of Johannes WIEDLE & Anna HEINZMAN.Our family records say that Anna was "from Waltedinger/Malterdingen, Germany" (the writing is unclear).
Wilhelm came to America in 1852.Our records say that he had a brother (no name is mentioned) & 2 half sisters.It states that one of the sisters, Magdalena (13 years old at the time) came over with Wilhelm's brother, also in 1852.The way it is worded makes it unclear whether Wilhelm came on the same ship with them.His brother is supposed to have been in Chicago.
Wilhelm married Wilhelmina ALTENBAUMER (also born in Germany) on February 4, 1866 in Clinton County, Illinois.They had 11 children, 7 living to adulthood.Wilhelm died on April 7, 1892 and Wilhelmina on January 29, 1915 - both in Clinton County, Illinois.
I'm looking for any info on Wilhelm's (or Wilhelmina ALTENBAUMER's) ancestors.They're my great-great grandparents and my line is through their son, Frederich William WIEDLE who married Matilda "Tillie" SWAGLER.I have more info on Frederich's children & siblings if this connects with anyone.
