In Reply to: Re: Herman Thiele b. 1878 in Nebraska, 1920 Census Nebraska by Reta of 302

Reta, below I'm posting the information as I understand it. (I find this format much easier to follow than narrative text--easier to find vital information.) I will keep my eyes peeled for anything that might relate to Herman. Was one of his sons a firefighter? When I was a youngster, already interested in genealogy, I saw an article in a newspaper that mentioned a THIELE fireman from the Sioux City area (if I remember correctly), and I wrote to the family because we had the same last name. Small world.
