I’m looking for any information (or suggestions where to look for information) on:
HELENE COHN was born 29 Oct 1835 in Hamburg (or perhaps Altona) and died 24 Mar 1908 in San Francisco, California. She married HERMANN HEYNEMANN.
He was also from Hamburg / Altona.He was the son of DAVID HEYNEMANN b. 1800 Ottensen, Island of Fuhnen, and HENRIETTA DELBANCO a Lombard Italian. HERMANN was born 25 Sep 1831 in Altona, Schleswig Holstein, and died 02 Aug 1902 in San Francisco, CA.

I’ve used Ancestry.com but can’t find any information about either one of them before they left Prussia, such as who her parents were or anything besides his parents’ names.I’ve also seen her name as Helena Cohn, Helena Cohen, and Helene Cohn.A grandson’s biography stated that her family was not well off, but Hermann’s family was and his family occupied one floor of this substantial residence. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/186/481415868_15df11a0d7.jpg?v=0http://farm1.static.flickr.com/186/481415868_15df11a0d7.jpg?v=0
