I have been trying for a very long time to learn and understand the life of this man. I can't explain why, but I feel like I just need to know what made him tick.. For this man is my Great-Great Grandfather. His name is Ferdinand Wiese. This is the only photo that I have of him. Don't know what kind of uniform this is. All I know is he came from Germany, sounds like a very stern man with a temper, and died in Iowa in 1886. But one thing I do know is that he gave me the BEST Great-Grandmother anyone could ask for. So, if you are reading this and are a history buff, please leave me a comment on your feelings of what the uniform is.. I really would like to solve my mystery.
