Mathias Thoimmes was born in Germany. It is believed that he came to America in Apr 1842. This date is based on the sketch of John Henry Thimmes and his father, Mathias Thimmes in "The Biographical Record of Fairfield County and Perry Counties, Ohio", pages 214-216, published in 1902. It said:

"John H. Thimmes was born in the city of Lancaster, November 1, 1853. His father, Mathias Thimmes, was a native of Baden, Germany where his birth occurred on the 24th of April, 1831. He was in his eleventh year when, in April, 1842, he was brought to the United States by his parents, Nicholas and Catherine (Snider) Thimmes, who on crossing the Atlantic to the new world took up their abode on a farm in Fairfield county, Ohio..."

It is believed that Mathias and his son, Nicholas and wife, Catharine and their 7 children (all born in Germany) migrated from Germany to Ohio at the same time. It is not known whether Mathias' wife made the trip.

Over the years, there have been many different spellings of the family name. According to the "Thimmes Family History", compiled by Paul Angus McLeod in 1958 (the GG Grandson of Mathias Thoimmes), the original German spelling was THOIMMES which agrees with Mathias' grave stone. Other variant spellings found on various documents include: Thomas, Timmens, Times, Thimmis, Thimmas, Thimes, Thaimmis & Tinnes.

Mathias' direct descendants now spell the name THIMMES.
