I am Calvin Theiss (77 years old). I grew up in Kahoka, MO.
You inquired about Phillippine Theiss Bartell. (I always thought it was Bartels, but could be wrong). My info says she and two brothers were sponsored by an uncle, Wilheim ( may be mispelled) to come to America. Her brothers were Chris and Peter, I never heard anything about another sister. I am the grandson of Peter and grew up on the family farm established by Wilheim.
The Bartels moved to Rock Island, Ill. She visited back to Kahoka several times in the 30's and early 40s. I remember a couple of these visits. There are a number of relatives still in Kahoka, tho none with the Theiss name.
Kahoka had and still has about 2000 people. I knew most of them in the 40s and never heard the name of Dice.
