Mrs. Amelia Heinsheimer

Mrs. Amelia Heinsheimer was born in Beyreuth, Bavaria about 1829. Her husband was David Heinsheimer. Amelia died on August 2, 1854, "in the 25th year of her pilgrimage."

Mrs. Amelia Heinsheimer was buried in Sandusky's Oheb Shalom Cemetery. A history of Reform Judaism in Sandusky, Ohio is found at the website of the Oheb Shalom Temple.

Very little is known about Amelia or David Heinsheimer. Their surname does not appear in any indexes of Erie County histories, or Erie County census records. To date, no marriage record has been found. There are listings of the last name Heinsheimer in the 1860 and 1870 U.S. Census in the states of Ohio, New York, and Iowa, but we do not have any clues as to which family Amelia may have been connected. If anyone knows more about Amelia Heinsheimer who is buried in Sandusky, Ohio, please leave a message in the comments field.
