I am seeking siblings of Nicholaus Thomann who immigrated in 1881 through New York and ended up in Akron, Ohio. Family history suggests that he was one of 10 boys and 4 girls, most of whom also emmigrated. I have at this point been unable to positively identify and siblings. I do notice though that there are several male Thomann's in Clay county Illinois in the mid-late 1800's. Only information I have about point of origin is "Bavaria, a southern german state close to the Swiss Alps and French border". There seems also to be some connection to family in Rochester New York. Sound familiar?
