Henry Siems

Henry Siems

My great-grandfather, Henry Siems, immigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1884. He was a boilermaker for the railroad and made moonshine in the mountains in Cameron County. He died Dec. 6, 1941. On the way back from his burial, my grandparents found out the U.S. was at war with Japan.
