Mr. Johann Wilhelm Thiele, whose death
at Loxton on Tuesday last was referred
to in this column on Wednesday, was one  
of the earliest settlers in the district;
in fact, when he arrived there the only  
inhabitant to greet him was a dog trapper.  
who was camped close to the river. Mr.  
Thiele was born at Hahndorf in 1840, his    
parents being among the first settlers in
that locality. In those days everything
had to be carted in bullock drays over
exceedingly rough tracks, and a toll was
collected at Glen Osmond. In 1863 Mr.
Thiele married Miss Martha Krueger, and
shortly afterwards began farming at Mount
Barker. This venture was not a success.  
and a move was made to Callington. where  
he carried on mixed farming with such
success that he was enabled to add con-
siderably to his holding in the Monarto
district. Later he acquired 1,000 acres of
scrub land north of Murray Bridge. This
property is still farmed by his eldest son,
Alfred. In spite of predictions that the
land in the vicinity of Loxton would never
grow wheat, Mr. Thiele, with two sons,
undertook a seven days waggon journey
to Loxton and after several years of bard  
battling was able to convince the sceptics
that, properly treated, the soil near Lox-
ton would produce the finest wheat in
Australia. Mr. Thiele left six sons
and four daughters. They are:—
Messrs. Alfred Thiele (Murray Bridge),
H. R. Thiele (Loxton), Edward Thiele
(Loxton), Charles Thiele (Monarto), Wil-
liam (Murray Bridge), R. E. Thiele (Lox-
ton ), and Mesdames August Kuchel
(Woolpundal), A. Thie!e (Loxton), Trimper
(Renmark), and A. Wachtel (Palmer).
There are 61 grandchildren and 28 great
grandchildren. Mrs. Thiele, who survives
her husband, is 82 years of age.
