THEISEN : A couple of my Theisen ancestors were (supposedly) born in Nevada, MO (John P. in 1887 and Frank in 1889) although no record of this can be found. They then moved on to Denver. In 1907, their grandmother's death notice was sent to somebody in Nevada, MO - which makes me think (1) when the Theisen family moved from Luxembourg to Nevada, MO, it's because some other family was already there, and (2) this other family stayed there until at least 1907. Anyone know some Theisens in Nevada back around that time? Thanks! Chris
