Peter Thein Avenue
Peter Joseph Thein was a proud Luxembourger. He was the Grandson [sic] of JohnPeter Thein, a blacksmith who emigrated from Boch, Luxenbourg to New Trier, Minnesota in1854. Peter was a self-made man with a very strong religious faith. This faith guided him through his many business interests -- which included land development, farming and banking -- along with his Thein Well Company --  [sic] his father Eugene started in 1893. Peter and Gertrude (Krommen) Thein were blessed with 64 years of marriage and raised 13 children -- 8 girsl and 5 boys. Peter enjoyed flying small planes, fishing, photography and traveling. He visited Luxembourg many times during his lifetime. We are honored to share our father's heritage with Peter Thein Avenue.
