Both brothers came to U.S. about 1871, from Germany. Both born about 1863. They lived in Appleton,Freedom, and Black Creek area of Wisconsin. I haven't been able to locate parents names or ship passenger account. They are possibly from Mecklenburg or Brandenburg area. Appently not closely related to Nielands of Iowa or any other known state. Would greatly appraciate any help. See Charles Nieland Tree for further info.Charles is my Great Grandfather.
Thanks Brad Nieland
