We have the obituary for Ephrain Hecht, was 74 when he died
His wife was Ricka, she was the third wife. He had 10 children, only 8 were alive when he died, 6 boys & 2 girls. At one time he was a merchant, but due to heath problems, he became a painter. He served in the Civil War in the Iowa 7th reg. under Sherman??.There was no date or town were he was from. We belive Ericka was my Grandmother's mother, she was Edith Hecht, married to Frank Hecht. They live in New Jersey.

Surnames: HECHT, SCHELLING
Just found your posting, even though it was almost a year ago! I just started on my mother-in laws family...

I have a William HECHT (approx. 1885 - 1958) possibly born Minnesota or Iowa. He owned a barber shop in St. Paul, MN. I believe, however, that this surname is an adopted name, as we believe William to have been adopted. Do not know parents names; adopted or birth.

He married and Elsie SCHELLING (approx. 1895 - 1916), and they had
Kenneth William HECHT (1914 - 1993), he was born in Harlem, MT, but his Social Security card was issued in Iowa. His last residence was in Cypress (Southern) California. This would be my grandfather-in-law.

I am looking for anything similar!?
Sincerely,

Surnames: Hecht
My great great grandfather E Hecht had 3 wives. With the first he had 6 children-Emma, Milton, Louis, Charles, Frank and William(my great grandfather). Agnes died 05/05/1876. They were married in Muscatine, Iowa about 1858. His second wife was Minna. The last name I have for her is a previous married name-Zentner. They were married 10/10/1880 in New York. Their children were Dave and Frank. Minna died 10/14/1888. Minna had at least one daughter by her first husband, Joseph, Bertha Zentner. Bertha married her step brother William (my gggrandparents). With his third wife, Ricka Ayst, E Hecht had Edyth and Paul. They were married 02/07/1889 in Newark, NJ. He was in the Civil War for Iowa. I would be interested in the obituary. I was not sure of his first name, but everything seems to match. I have seen pictures of him with each wife.

I have a new email address since May 2002. I have found the marriage of Ephraim Hecht and Agnes Bennett in Muscatine, Iowa in September 1858. Now I know Ephraim was his first name. Would still be interested in any information you have to see if the Ephraim or Ephrain are the same.

Yes, I would love it. I have not had time in the last year and half to do any research on my Great Grandfather. I do know he was married two or three times. He had children by all his wives, so there was a span between the children. One account said he had 8 children. The first wives died of a unknown cause. The only name I know is my Great Grandmother, Rica, which could be short for Fredricka.Thanks Debra
