I'm looking for information on my great-grandfather, Mathias Thielen (also spelled Thelen). He was born 11/11/1819, don't know where. He married Catherine Young Gillet in 1853. Mathias and Catherine raised a large family in the Village of Arlington, Westfield Township, Bureau County, Illinois. Mathias died 01/30/1883 and is buried in St. Peter & Paul Catholic cemetery in Peterstown (LaSalle) County, Illinois.
I have no information on Mathias' parents, but believe that the Thelens emigrated from Trier, Germany.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
