Born in Sheffield, England, on this date in 1804: Thiel’s second great-grandfather Joseph Green. Pictured above: Thornton Abbey in Sheffield, dating from the 13th century. After coming to America in 1850, Joseph owned a grist and sawmill in Dayton, Wisconsin. It is apparently a coincidence that Dayton, Wisconsin is located in Green County. Below: Green County courthouse in the city of Monroe.
