Biography of Mathias Thiel
Northwestern Ohio Biographies

The well appointed farm of this gentleman is pleasantly located in Section 7, Mark township, Defiance county, where he has made his home for over a quarter of a century. He has given his close attention to the cultivation and improvement of his place with results which can hardly fail to be satisfactory to himself. The farm comprises eighty six acres of fine land, improved with good and substantial buildings.

Mr. Thiel was born in New York, May 16, 1847, and when a child removed to Seneca county, Ohio, with his parents, Michael and Margaret (Welter) Thiel. There he made his home until eighteen years of age, when the family went to Williams county, this State, where both the father and mother died. Of their seven children our subject is fourth in the order of birth. He remained under the parental roof until his marriage, aiding in the operation of the home farm.

On June 13, 1871, Mr. Thiel was married to Miss Eliza Huber, daughter of Anthony Huber, of Defiance county, and to them have been born five children, namely: Anthony J.; Michael L.; Arvilla F.; and Agatha H., who are all living; and Clara E., who died at the age of ten years. Soon after his marriage, Mr. Thiel located permanently upon his present farm. He is a wide awake, progressive business man, and his career has been such as to win for him the confidence and respect of all with whom he has come in contact.
