I also have Heintz family in the Akron area.JOHN HEINTZ was born November 17, 1844 and died December 22, 1908 in Michigan. He married CATHERINE COVER June 23, 1870 in Bath, Summit, Ohio. She was born August 09, 1847 in Bath, Summit, Ohio, and died June 23, 1900 in Michigan.
Children of JOHN HEINTZ and CATHERINE COVER are:
i. FRANKLIN ELSWORTH HINES, b. April 04, 1871, Mogadore, Summit, Ohio. ii. WARREN EBER HINES, b. December 24, 1874, Bath, Summit, Ohio; d. Chicago, Illinois iii. CHARLES WILLIAM HINES, b. July 07, 1877, Paw Paw, Michigan; d. March 12, 1951, Penn Yan, Yates County, New York. iv. MARY BELLE HINES, b. August 31, 1880, Bath, Summit, Ohio
While I believe John Heintz was born in Germany, it is uncertain how he came to Ohio. Would love to know if the two families are related.It is possible that John and George were brothers.
