I am looking for more information on my g.g. grandfather, John HEIM
and his wives children. Josephine is my line after him, Clare is my
grandfather. Please note: Clare was 1st married to Frances, then Vesta,
then Frances again. It is a glitch in my system that makes it say Clare m.
Frances second. Thanks!

She gave me some info. that she remembered. (We live in Illinois.) I have a website on the genealogy
which I could send you by e-mail. Would be thrilled to share info.!
Thanks so much. Hope to hear from you soon!

Thomas,
Other info. I have on your grandfather, Joseph is that he died of a heart attack. Is this correct?
NOTES ON my great grandmother (Joseph's sister, JOSEPHINE HEIM:)
(Clare below in the notes is my grandfather)

Rumor has it by several sources that Clare, the youngest of "Sopheni"'s children, was in her arms when she died of a heart attack. Clare was just three and she was just forty-four. She had Clare late in life, seven years after her next youngest, Mertel, was born.
Although her husband's father had a sixty acre farm, the good fortune did not seem to rub off on them. It is said that "Sopheni" and George's family often had watered down coffee and bread for a meal and that when "Sopheni" died, there was not enough money for a stone. It was her son, Clarence, who made her a stone which he carved, that just says "Mother". It is in row 2 and the second tomb in Oakhill Cemetary in Mercer Co., PA.
IMMIGRATION NOTES:
Josephine "Sophieni" "Sophia" HEIM:
Came to America on the ship SS Elbe...
DISTRICT OF NEW YORK – PORT OF NEW YORK April 14th, 1883
-> 3 Sofie Heim 22 from Bohemia to U.St.of Am. Steerage 1
Josephine must have came to America 2 years after her mother if indeed her mother's information is correct.

1910 Lake Twp., Mercer Co., PA Census: 40 yrs. old, 20 yrs. married, 10 children, 7 living...Her father, John was also living with her at this time.

***Do you know when your grandfather came over?

NOTES ON ELIZABETH (KORNA) HEIM:
(Josephine Joseph's mother)
Elizabeth was a good Christain woman and while her and her children were on their way to America from Troyal, Austria, a terrible storm threatened to take the ship. Elizabeth and her children had to be in the lower deck of the boat but she begged to see the Captain of the ship because she knew that there was a terrible sin going on in the upper deck. She told the captain that they would all perish if he did not stop it. To please her, he went to the upper deck and as she had said, there were drunkards having sex. As soon as the Captain broke it up the storm stopped. The year was 1881. (Please see dau. Josephine notes-dau. came to America from Bohemia in 1883...only Heim listed at this time.)

NOTES ON JOHN HEIM:
(Josephine Joseph's father)
He first came to the United States and then sent for his wife and children.
He worked on the Alps.

NOTES ON MARY HEIM:
(Sister of Josephine Joseph)
Mary died at age 102 years and 5 months, leaving behind 278 direct descendants.
Mary told Viola Heim Reiser that she remembered when she came to the United States from Troyal, Austria. She was only six years old.
When they came across they had to be on the lower deck of the boat, which they called the "hole". She remembered a baby dying and it having to be thrown overboard because the sharks would have off-set the boat. The mother was hysterical and pulled her own hair out.
***************************************

I have more. Please e-mail me at chugs@davesworld.net I will give you my website address as well. (I don't think we are allowed to put them here)

All the Best, Looking Forward to Hearing from you!
Vicki
When her father, John, used to work on the Alp Mountains, Mary would go with him and pick flowers on the mountain.

My great grandmother was Mary Heim Funkhouser. ( 12/8/1875 - 5/1978). Her family tree has been well documented and she had many children, four of whom lived well into their 90's. The John Elizabeth Heim and Joseph Heim are great great grandparents and these stories are fascinating. I (actually my mother)does have information on Mary's extended family. Would love to hear from anyone who is "related" to this family.
