My grandfather Henry Clarence Thole b. 12 Aug 1896 in St. Louis MO, married Emilie Catherine Schmidt on 27 Apr 1921.

My great grandfather Henry Thole married Louisa Nickles on 9 Nov 1893. It has been difficult finding information on either one. I do know that he was a blacksmith, listed in Gould's Directory 1894-1895, located at 2208 Gravois Ave., St. Louis Mo. In the 1900 census, Louisa is listed as head of household, 2 children, William and Clarence Henry.

For yrs. my grandfather had said his dad died in a train wreck when he was 3 yrs. old. After much searching we recently found an article in the St. Louis Daily Globe Democrat, 26 Oct. 1896. He was one of eight killed. My grandfather was only 3 months old.

We believe my gg grandfather Herrmann Henry Thole married Anna Gesina, both from Hanover, Germany. Known children:

Theresa Thole abt 1857 married Henry Rakel.

Bertha Thole b. Jan 1865, died 6 April 1916. Married Bernard Bahlmann 10 Jun 1884. 4 children known. 3 died of typhoid.

Henry Thole.

Benjamin Thole b abt. 1870 died 12 Nov. 1901.

John Dietrich Thole.

Joseph M. Thole.

We believe that Hermann Henry Thole had a brother named Berhard/Bernhard?

I have copies of the 1894 & 1895 St. Louis Gould's Directory listings for Thole's. 1894 lists 8 Thole's, 1895 lists 10 Thole's.

Make me the fourth person searching for a Thole! If any of this sounds familiar please let me know.
