Heesch from Schleswig-Holstein to Iowa
My GGGG Grandfather Peter Jacob Heesch as born November 28, 1824 in Cleve, Parish Hendstedt, Norder Dithmarschen, Holstein, Germany and died September 1850 in Hospital, Rendsburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. His father was Johann Hinrich Heesch b. 1778 and his mother was Weibcke Moller b. May 07, 1792 in Cleve.
His widow remarried and emigrated to Iowa May 22, 1852 with her new husband Frederick Schoellerman, their son Frederick, and her children from her earlier marriage, Weipke and Elsabea Heesch and possibly Ulrich Heesch, settling in Garnavillo, Clayton County, Iowa.
Are any of your Heesch's related to this family?
