I have just discovered on familysearch.com this relationship. My grandfather George Wehe's obituary states that his parents were Johannes and Sophia Wehe.After his arrival in US from Germany he visited in Uncle and cousins in Pekin/Peoria ILL.
Information from the above Web site records show that Johannes Wehe was married to Sophia Elizabeth Heckmann (b- April 8, 1827. Mannheim, Baden, Germany). Her parents were Johann Georg & Anna Maria (Lichtner) Heckmann (March 24, 1796 in Zizuhausen, Baden, Germany)
The Uncle in Pekin/Peoria, ILL, area were George John (b- Aug 24,1831; d- Nov 18, 1898 in Pekin, ILL) & Marie F. (Weber) Heckmann....descendants and "cousins" nameswere Smith, Holmes, Siebens, Hackler, Heckmann, Watt -all show up pictures taken when George Wehe visited his cousins in Pekin, Ill, July 6, 1924.
Now I'm sure that my grandfather George Wehe's mother, Sophia was a sister of George John Heckmann of Pekin, ILL.
