Query: Friedrick Heitzmann, Vanderburgh County
My g-g-grandparents lived briefly in Evansville, Pigeon Township, according to the 1860 census. I assume my g-g-grandfather died in Indiana and am looking for his place of burial.
My g-g-grandparents were Fred (Frederick/Friedrick) Heitzmann, b.ca 1808 Baden, Germany; Elizabeth (his wife) b.ca 1816/1820; daughter Sophia, b.ca 1853 in NY; son Frederick, b.ca 1851 in NY; son Leopold, b.ca 1857 in NY.
By 1865 Elizabeth and the children were living in Buffalo, NY, and she was listed as a widow. They are all buried in Buffalo. Since the children were born in NY, I assume their stay in Indiana was brief. Any help on the burial place of Friedrick, Sr. would be appreciated.
