Hefner I have seventeen children listed first wife seven (7) second wife Mary (one half native american) Beard (man). I think that this is your susan.let me know if this will help.
p.s. family stories says twenty-one (21) children. can't find them. The Thomas and Martin Hefner's are all through the family hard to keep them stright. But I think this is fairly straight.
