Re: Heuring/Calvin connection Posey Co, IN
There is a Heuring surname board here
I have, per, "The Heuring Heritage" author Geri Heuring Demoss the following:
Please note ***"Calvin" is spelled "Colvin" in the book
Charles Augustus Heuring, second child of Charles and Anna Heuring, was born 19 December 1858 in Maryland and died 10 of June 1941. He was married 10 February 1884 in Posey Co. Indiana to Mary E. Colvin, the daughter of Moses and Rebecca Colvin. Mary was born 1861 in Indiana and died Aug. 1934. Both are buried in the Black River Cemetery.
The 1882 census lists Charles as a farmer living in Stewartsville, Robb Township.
In 1900 Charles A. Heuring and his wife Mary E. were living in Robb TWP Posey County. The records indicate that she had been the mother of five children but only three were living.They were William Oscar, age 12.Charles Preston, age 10. Garland E., age 5.
By 1910 Charles occupation had changed to bridge carpenter. He was still living in Posey with Mary, and sons Preston age 20, a telegraph operator; and Garland, whose occupation is given as a brakeman for a railroad.
Charles and Mary were the parents of 5 children

There is much information on Charles Augustus's mother and father - Charles Fredrick Heuring and Anna (Fishpaugh) married in Maryland 1856

Jacob and Johanna (Keller) Heuring (both born in Wiemar, Germany and arrived through Baltimore approx 1827 and both buried in Maple Hill Cemetery, New Harmony In.)Jacob and Johanna had 50 children and grandchildren at the time of Johanna's death.They were the parents of 14 children. The first 6 born in Germany.
Charles Fredrick, fourth child of Jacob and Johanna Heuring b. June 10 1833 in Germany.He was killed on Apr. 28, 1881 by a falling plank while working on the Black River Bridge near Griffin. His thirteen year old son, James, witnessed the accident.

Anna also died tragically, March 13 1923 when her gown caught fire as she was standing too close to a fireplace-grate. She was 89. Both Charles and Anna are buried in Maple Hill Cemetery, New Harmony.
Charles and Anna were the parents of 8 Children.
E-mail me and I can fax you some more info or tell you how to find the book.I received one of the very last copies available for sale but there are a couple of Libraries who are in possession. Your local library should be able to do a search as I may really have to dig to find it ..lol..might take a little time.
BTW...My heritage, from Jacob and Johanna, is through their first son, Fredrick Augustus Heuring, Chaplain 25th Ind. Vol Reg 1861-1864 and his wife Augustine Busch from Gentryville area.
So far, our heritage seems to be from the Bavaria area...but has proven very difficult to find much more, further back, before the immigration.
Hope this helps somewhat!
