Helen (Weishaar) Theil, Illinois 1894

Helen Weishaar 1st communion in Chicago Heights, Illinois in 1894: Helen Weishaar married Joe Thiel. Joe had a farm 'across the border' from Illinois in Crown Point, Indiana. Helen and Joe had a nice family (Bill, Clarence, Elizabeth, Francis, [external link] I forgetting anybody?) and they all married and had families of their own. You can read about Joe Thiel in WWI (he nearly died from a poison gas attack, may have fallen in love, caught fever and nearly died yet one more time before he was honorably discharged) about him in my book The Devildogs of Old Sauk Trail. - John Michael Klawitter ... show more
