Henry was born about 1813. He passed away in 1899.


No direct evidence has been found for Peter's birth location, though his son Johann's marriage record[1] indicates that he was born in the Mecklenburg/Schwerin area of Germany. Using available 19th century census records from Schwerin, there are a lot of Thielke families, and possibly Peter, listed. Unfortunately, there is no simple way to prove that he is listed in these census records without more information. Research is ongoing.

There is also ongoing research via the Thielke Surname Study to try to connect Peter and his line to the Carl Thielke line that settled just a few miles to the north in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. Peter's family settled south of there in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin.
