I have recently found out who my emigrating ancestors were and looking to see if anyone has any connections.
Lawrence Heckman b. Doolin(?), France,prob. 1821, married Mary (?)- born France, prob. 1818. They had two sons:
Ignatius John Heckman(n), b. Doolin(?), FR, 1848 (see Family Tree below)
George Heckman, b. Doolin(?), FR, prob. 1849.
This family immigrated to New Orleans, from Havre, on June 25, 1853.They settled in Vincennes, Indiana.
In the 1860 Knox County (IN)Census, they show another son, born in Indiana, prob in 1859, age 8 mos., named Florance.
In the 1870 Vincennes (IN)Census, they no longer show Florance in their household, but a son, age 7 (b.1863?), named Jacob.
I have decendant information for Ignatius John Heckman, but no others.Any of these sound familiar?
