I am a descendant of Adam Thomas who came to Fond du Lac from Germany in March 1882. He was married to Louise Amelia Weil (Wiel?) who came from Germany to Fond du Lac in 1884 with a son, my grandfather, William Thomas who later immigrated to Canada. Louise had a sister, Emelie Weil, who came from Germany to Fond du Lac in Dec 2 1882 with her husband William Bowe and son Frederick Bowe (3 years old). Emilie & William had two more sons Otto and Frank. Emilie died in Chicago Dec 4, 1936 but is buried in Forest Hill cemetery in Fond du Lac according to her death certificate.
Are you related to any of these Bowe families from Fond du Lac? I would appreciate any information about the Thomas, Weil or Bowe families which could help my research.
