Fredrick and Marianne Heiden

Today is the birthday of Fredrich Carl August Heiden, my paternal 3rd great grandfather. He was born on September 15, 1832 in Mecklenburg, Nordwestmecklenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. He married Marianna “Mina” Allwardt while they still lived in Germany. Sometime in 1857, the young couple and their firstborn son, Theodore Frederick, immigrated to the United States via the port in Hamburg. On the 20th of June, 1857, the young family arrived in New York on the Charles C. Fowler passenger ship.*

Fredrich and his family lived in Bergholtz, NY when they first arrived in the USA, but at some point they moved west to Effingham County, Illinois. He and Mina had ten children, but three died in infancy. He supported his family through farming.

Fredrich died on the 21st of January, 1905 from Cirrhosis of the Liver, from which he had suffered for eight years.**
