--By the way, I have been in touch, by email, with one Ann Heiselman, who also lives in the Akron, Ohio area, and whose son is Dr. Fred Heiselman, a dentist, who now lives in Cincinnati.I think Fred's middle name is Anthony, and I think he was named after his father, Anthony Heiselman.Perhaps he is your father's uncle Tony? I am not sure how I am related to the Akron Heiselmans, but I have a theory that all the Heiselmans were once Heiselmanns (only spelling you can find in Germany today) and they all came from Weissenstadt, a small town in northern Bavaria, north of Nuremberg.
My greatgrandfather was Frank Heiselmann, who, by some stories, came to the US with two sisters, Barbara and Lena, and by other stories, came here with his father and his younger brother (We do not know who the younger brother was, but we think he is the ancestor of the New York/Pennsylvania/New Jersey/northern Ohio Heiselmans.)
... Barbara and Frank definitely settled in New Palestine, Ohio in (circa) 1854.Barbara married Gottfied Hegner.Frank married Mary Werner, who died after one surviving child (John), and then he married Mary's younger sister Adelaide, who was the mother of Frank (my grandfather), Theresa, Mary, Alexander, George and Otto.Some changed the spelling to Heiselman (George and John) and others such as Theresa, Frank and Otto continued to spell it Heiselmann.(Mary died childless in childbirth.Alexander died as a child. Theresa lived into her 90s but never married.)Frank, John (who moved to Texas), George (who moved to Kentucky), and Otto (who moved to Illinois) all had children and grandchildren and recently greatgrandchildren.
