Note: This date is probable, based on available records. The best information comes from a strong DNA match to a family living in Brandenburg in this time frame. He could be the August Henrich Tigges born to Wilhelm and Dorothee Jaensche Tiegs, but further confirmation is needed. He could also have been born to Wilhelm's brother or father. 
Another possibility is that this family was somehow associated with the family of August Heinrich Friedrich Thiegs Von Tycowicz and his wife Friedericke Wilhelmine Von Gerdtel. Their son of the same name was born in Stargard in 1845. It appears the father was in the military, and it was not uncommon for males to emigrate to avoid that fate. That could be why my Henry came to America in 1866. The clue here is that my Henry married a woman from Stargard. More research is needed to connect these two lines. 
Removed ABT from Death Date and marked as uncertain.

Note: Again, we have two immigration records. Both show place of origin as Sachsen. Sachsen bei Ansbach is near Nurenberg, which is now in Bavaria. But note: There is a Sachsenstrasse in Steinheim. Could this have been recorded erroneously on the passenger list? The first is Manifest ID number: 00030297; Name: Heinrich Tigges; Age: 18; Gender: Male; Occupation: Painter; Last Residence: U? (Prussia listed for others on manifest); Place of origin: Sachsen; Date of Arrival: 12 Jan 1866; Final Destination: New York; Purpose for Travel: Staying in the USA; Port of Embarkation: Antwerp; Mode of Travel: Steerage. He was traveling alone. Per Don Tigges. [It appears Henry made two trips in the same year. Perhaps he was refused entry in New York, returned to Germany for papers and reentered in December ofthe same year.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Henry by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Henry:
