Note: The 1850 census shows Joseph and Agnes Heying (Harging) farming in District 7 Township, Dubuque County, Iowa. They have 3 children; Catherine 6, (born in Germany), Henry 3, (born in Indiana), and John 1 (born in Iowa). Also living with the Heying's is Agnes Hinkle, 73, who was born in Germany (mother-in-law). The 1860 census shows Joseph and Agnes Heying (Heink) farming in Liberty Township, Dubuque County, Iowa. Their post office is New Vienna, Iowa. Living with Joseph and Agnes is Agnes Meyer (Maier) 85 years old, no relation given but believed to be Agnes Heying's mother. The census indicates that Catharine (Katie), was born in Oldenberg, Germany in 1847, the rest of the children were born in the U.S. This would indicate that the Heying's immigrated to the U.S. between 1843 and 1847. The 1870 census shows the Heying's farming in Liberty Township, Dubuque County, Iowa. Living with Joseph and Agnes is Agnes Maier (Meyer) 97 years old, who was also born in Oldenburg, Germany as was Joseph and Agnes Heying -- she is believed to be Agnes Heying's mother. John Heying and his wife Antoinette, along with their two children are also living in the Joseph Heying household. August 1994--the headstone in Holy Trinity Cemetery, Luxemburg, Iowa for Agnes Maier reads "Grossmutter Heying" -- the dates were unreadable. (June 2000 -- extensive examination of the headstone revealed the birth date of 12 October 1773 and a death date of 5 December 1870) Agnes Maier is mentioned in letter from Marie Wernke. Wernke was told that Agnes was the mother of Agnes Heying and was always referred to as Grandmother Heying. Her tombstone in Luxembourg, Iowa, which we found in July 1994, reads Grossmutter (German) Heying.
