Hello! I saw your message and thought I would reply. I have seen the grave stone of Nicolas Thimmesch at St. Donatus Iowa (Dubuque). I am looking for information on Peter Thimmesch, who I thought was his brother. Peter was born in 1833(1) in Luxembourg, emigrated in 1854, married at St. Donatus Iowa in 1855, had children Charles 1856, Mathew 1857, Michael 1859, Kate 1868, PeterII 1874, Joseph 1861, Clara 1881, and Caroline 1856.
Anything sound familiar?
Good to meet another Thimmesch from the "fatherland"
