Peter H. Thielen was born on 05 Apr 1862 in Racine, Wisconsin. His parents were German immigrants Heinrich "Henry" Thielen and Gertrude (Thelen) Thielen (my guess is that Peter's middle name was Henry). Peter was my great-great-grandfather.
Peter died of prostate cancer on 15 Oct 1935 at Wisconsin General Hospital in Madison, a forerunner of the University of Wisconsin Hospital.
Peter was buried in Old Holy Cross Cemetery on Kinzie Avenue in Racine, in the Kurten family plot of his in-laws, beside his wife and infant grandson.
