Primary research is on the descendents of the Johann Bernard Heimann family, who arrved in NY, NY from Westphalen, Prussia, in 1834. Their sons came to Texas and the rest of the family followed in 1838. Johann (John) died in Galveston, TX, in 1840, and his widow, Elizabeth, remarried Peter Lawson of Galveston, in 1844. Original Heimann (Heiman) descendents can be found in Galveston Co., while others settled along the Texas coast from Chambers Co. to Calhoun Co., and as far north as Colorado Co.

Currently trying to find any information on Francis (Frank) W. Allen, thought to have been born in RI circa 1820-1830. He married Sarah E. Heimann of Galveston, TX, sometime around 1845-1848, and they may have lived in Brenham, TX for a time. He and Sarah had three children, Anna Elizabeth, Sarah Elizabeth, and Claude J. Allen, all born in Galveston. The last recorded mention of him is in a 1875 Galveston City Directory, where his wife Sarah, is listed as his widow.

Also have information on the Hines family, descended from John William Hines who lived in or near Londonderry, Ireland circa 1600. A son, William Hines, Sr., arrived in Jamestown, VA in 1650. Research is primarily obtained from contributors, with my research concentrating on W. Ford (Forde) Hines who was born in Wayne Co., NC, in 1812, married Julia Rye in AL, in 1844, and lived and owned land in Louisiana before finally settling in Texas in the 1870's.
