Date: 15 NOV 1846
Place: Prussia, Germany
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. [1]


Date: ABT 04 NOV 1904

Note: Henry's lineage as stated here is tentative. I do not yet have sufficient proof, although DNA evidence suggests that he is related to a family in Brandenburg (East Germany) and/or near Dresden.
Source: #S409
Note: I am unable to tell which of these immigration records applies to our Henry, or indeed if either of them does. No birth or baptismal record has been found in Saxony records online.


Date: 1865
Place: near Nuremburg, Sachsen, Prussia (now Bavaria), Germany
Note: Sachsen bei Ansbach is near Nurenberg. But note: There is a Sachsenstrasse in Steinheim. Could this have been recorded erroneously on the passenger list?
