ANNIE E. HEINZERLING
DEN 25 MAI 1874
Louis Heinzerling was born in Hesse, Germany in May 1832, according to the 1900 U.S. Census. He came to the U.S.A. in 1854. In the 1871 Sandusky City Directory, Louis Heinzerling was employed at a dry goods store, Zollinger & Heinzerling, located at the southeast corner of Hancock and Madison Streets. This location was home to a great number of businesses in Sandusky through the years, including the Wholf Hardware store from the 1960's through the 1980's. Wholf Hardware store had wooden floors, and a variety of hardware and household items in a "no frills" style. Sandusky residents were sad to see it close.
