Okay, I have heard from your grandfather, and to make matters even more interesting that puts us fairly closely related. H.H. Tiebe was the son of William Tiebe, as I think I have already written. William Tiebe was born sometime around 1840 or so in Prussia (referring to the Prussian empire, not strictly the area currently known as Prussia), and came with his parents, names unknown, to America. He apparently had at least one sibling, a sister lamed Lizzie Tiebe, who I know very little about. That's all I know about the family, and am very, very interested to learn more, especially because this would be incredibly good news for my grandpa (Charles McOmber, son of Margaret Belle Tiebe, sister of your Harry Henry), who is now 84 years old and has been looking for information about his grandfather for years. Anything you could provide about where the family came from in Germany would be especially appreciated, because I am currently in Germany, and for the next two months.
I also have some stories about our William Harry Tiebe, if you would like those, though it is always possible you've already heard them all from your father.
I hope we can set up a good correspondence, and maybe we could continue this using e-mail.
