He was the oldest child of Henry and Franziska Bracht Noelle He had two brothers, Henry and Joseph. Their mother died when Joseph was a baby. Later their father married Elizabeth Walters. They had six children including a set of twins. The three boys from the first marriage and the youngest boy of the second wife emmigrated to America as young men. They did not come at the same time. We think Frank was the first one to come in 1890 when he was 25. With him were Frank Thielmann, Anton Prinz, and a cousin, Albert Bracht, all from the town of Callenhardt.

  • At http://marykleinschmit.com/ Our Mother's name was Maria Franziska Theresia Tillmann but she went by Theresia. Her parents were Bernard Tillmann and Theresa Gockler. She was born on Nov. 3, 1884 in Bockum, Kreis Meschede, Westfalen, Germany. Her parents died of typhoid fever within two weeks of each other during a typhoid epidemic. They had two daughters, Theresia, 5, and Maria, 3 years old. The two girls were raised by two different families. Mother was raised (not adopted) by cousins, Joseph and Kasperina (Kessler) Tillmann in Wenneman, a town near Bockum where Mother's parents lived. They had children her age so she fit right in. Maria was adopted by a family named "Doering" in a nearby town of Freinohl. They were an older couple who had no children, so she was raised as an only child. Although both girls were dearly loved by their new families, I think Mother missed having her sister with her while they were growing up. I've been told that they occasionally visited each other but I'm sure they would rather have been together. I was never told why they weren't adopted by the same family.
