    Martin, who also went by the name Ludwig, married Esther KOPP 12 August 1828 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg and worked for a time as a ship builder.  In 1853 he, Esther, and four surviving children of the 18 born to them left Le Havre, France on the ship “Orlando,” arriving in New York on 23 April. The ship’s passenger list has Martin Heuss, age 52, farmer; Esther, age 47, farmer; Esther, age 20, farmer; Anne-Marie, age 18, farmer; Joh. Friedr., age 9, child, and Friedrich, age 5 child. (The last child named was daughter Magdalena Friederike.) The family settled first in Marion County, Ohio, but by the 1860 census resided in Gibson Township, Mercer County, Ohio where Ludwig farmed. In this census his name was enumerated as Lewis Hienss, per the index.

     Esther was born 10 January 1805 in Aldingen, Wurttemberg, Germany and is said to have been a first cousin to Friedrich Kopp who married Catharina Menner and also emigrated to the United States in 1853.  It was their daughter, Marie Catharine, who married Wilhelm Frederick Heuss, son of Johann Peter Hartmann Heuss, Martin’s brother, and Maria Christiane Thumm.  Esther's father has not been positively identified but could be Johann Georg Kopp, born 1771; Johann Jacob Kopp, born 24 July 1773; or Matthaeus Kopp born in 1780.  They were all sons of Johann Bernhardt Kopp and his second wife Anna Maria Rappold.  Johann Bernhardt was born at Neckarweihingen 9 July 1739 and died there 2 February 1828.  Anna Maria, his wife, was born 9 August 1745 and died 20 December 1809.  Johann Bernhardt Kopp’s first wife was Margaretha Haas who he married 25 November 1758.

He died before 1900.

     Rosine Cathrine died some time after 1900. In the census that year she lived with her son John in Salamonia and was enumerated as the mother of six children, four still living.

     Known children of Rosine Cathrine4 MAIER/MAYER and Mathias BISCHOFF were as follows (out of birth order):

                  19       i.    Christena5 BISCHOFF was born circa 1860 in Marion County, Ohio.  She married George W.

     12.  Rosine Friederike4 HEUSS (Johann Peter Hartmann3, Georg Philipp2, Johann Peter Hartmann1) was born 29 November 1831 in Aldingen, Wurttemberg, Germany and was christened in 1845 in Wurttemberg.  She emigrated to the United States in 1852 and married Johann MAIERS/MAYERS/MAYER 18 September 1853 in Marion, Marion County, Ohio.  Rosine died 20 March 1896 in Marion County at age 64.  She was buried in St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery, Richland Township in that county.

     Johann was born 2 September 1832 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg, Germany and also emigrated to the United States in 1852 and settled in Richland Township in Marion County. Once in America his surname is seen spelled variously as Myers (1860 census), Mayer (1870 and 1880 and 1910 censuses), Mayers (1900 and 1920 censuses) and his children appear to have not shared a common spelling. Johann died 9 April 1924 in Marion County, Ohio at age 91, and was buried in St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery.

     Known children of Rosine Friederike4 HEUSS and Johann MAIERS/MYERS/MAYERS, all born in Marion County, Ohio, were as follows (sons shown with the surname spelling most commonly associated with them): (Out of birth order)

     13.  Wilhelm Friedrich4 HEUSS (Johann Peter Hartmann3, Georg Philipp2, Johann Peter Hartmann1) was born 28 September 1833 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg, Germany.  Wilhelm lived with his parents in the tavern they owned near a toll bridge on the Neckar River between the towns of Ludwigsburg and Cannstatt in Wurttemberg. Ludwigsburg was a military station and officers often came to eat at the tavern which was famous for its cuisine. As a young man Wilhelm worked in the shipyard. On 29 April 1854 he was issued a passport to leave for America the next day. The passport gave his reason for emigrating as: 'in order to find work.'  Upon arriving in the United States, William Frederick, as he spelled his name, settled first in Marion County, Ohio. After the birth of his first child, William moved to a farm in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana, where he lived for about 40 years. Here he cut trees to clear the land and planted a large orchard of apples and pears trees. William built a log house with one large room and a loft above which in later years was enclosed and a frame addition added. In 1900 he sold this farm and bought a small one near Union City in Randolph County, Indiana and lived there until his death 24 February 1904 at age 70. He was buried in Union City Cemetery.

     William could not serve in the Civil War because of a crooked great toe. He was said to be a short, stocky man with a round face, who liked to smoke the tobacco he raised.

     William married Marie Catharine KOPP, daughter of Friedrich Kopp and Catharine Menner, 10 December 1857 in Bowling Green Township, Marion County, Ohio. Friedrich Kopp was said to have been a first cousin to Esther Kopp who married Martin Ludwig Heuss (See #5 above), her husband Wiliam’s uncle.  Marie Catharine was born 20 April 1836 in Poppenweiler, Wurttemberg, Germany.  She died 13 September 1906 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana at age 70 and was buried in Union City Cemetery.

                  34      ii.    Maria HEUSS was born 6 August 1860 in Jay County, Indiana and died 17 November 1925 in Marion County, Ohio at age 65.  She was buried in that county. Maria never married and worked in a candy factory in the city of Marion.

             +   35     iii.    Louisa HEUSS, born 30 August 1862 in Jay County, Indiana; married Frederick John VEIT.

                  39     vii.    Karolina HEUSS was born 6 September 1870 in Jay County, Indiana and died 11 February 1871 in Jay County, Indiana age 5 months and 25 days. Her name was also spelled Caroline per her headstone.

             +   40    viii.    Karl Wilhelm HEUSS, born 28 December 1871 in Jay County, Indiana; married Letitia Romoline WOODBURY.

             +   41      ix.    Johannes Tobias HEUSS, born 22 February 1874 in Jay County, Indiana; married Mary Ann MONTGOMERY.

             +   42       x.    Mathius Jakob HEUSS, born 29 February 1876 in Jay County, Indiana; married Anna MERRILL.

                  43      xi.    Klara HEUSS was born 24 January 1878 in Jay County, Indiana. Her name was also spelled Clara per the 1880 and 1900 censuses.

                  44     xii.    Albert Heinrich HEUSS was born 7 October 1880 in Jay County, Indiana.  He died 30 August 1973 in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana at age 92. About 1917 Albert married Gertrude BOWSER, who was born 17 July 1890, the daughter of Daniel and Alice (Ellis) Bowser, and died 25 June 1977 in Indianapolis at age 86.  Albert was a self-employed construction worker with Keurt Construction Company for 25 years, and also worked for Freeman Store Equipment 14 years. Albert and Gertrude had no children and resided in Indianapolis.

 

     15.  Esther4 HEUSS (Martin Ludwig3, Georg Philipp2, Johann Peter Hartmann1) was born 11 January 1833 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg, Germany and confirmed in 1846. In 1853 she came to the United States with her parents and three siblings, settling first in Marion County, Ohio and then in Mercer County, Ohio. Esther died 22 March 1903 in Jay County, Indiana at age 70.  She was buried in Green Mound Cemetery, Fort Recovery, Mercer County.

     Esther married Frederick WORTZ who was born 28 November 1828 in Wurttemberg, Germany. Frederick enlisted in Company B., 42nd Indiana Infantry on 22 October 1864 and served with distinction until mustered out 21 July 1865 in Louisville, Kentucky. He died 1 April 1892 in Jay County, Indiana at age 63, and was buried in Green Mound Cemetery.  Frederick may have had a wife before Esther and had children John, Mary and Ellen by this wife, or the 1860 census placing Esther in the household of her parents may not be correct.  Frederick cannot be located in either the 1850 or 1860 censuses to confirm.  John, Mary and Ellen do appear as the son and daughters of Frederick in the 1870 census for Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana.

     Known children of Esther4 HEUSS and Frederick WORTZ, all born in Jay County, Indiana, were as follows:

                  45       i.    Christina5 WORTZ was born 17 January 1862 and died 31 January 1891 at age 29.  She was buried in Green Mound Cemetery, Fort Recovery, Mercer County, Ohio.

             +   46      ii.    Charles WORTZ, born 27 September 1864; married S. Ella WARNOCK.

                  47     iii.    Emma WORTZ was born in December 1869 and died in 1948 at age 79. She was buried in Green Mound Cemetery, Fort Recovery, Mercer County, Ohio. Emma married John William MONEY 1 February 1896 in Jay County, Indiana. John was born in 1868 in Indiana and died in 1944 at age 76. He, also, was buried in Green Mound Cemetery. The couple had two daughters, both born in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana: Orpha E., born 9 April 1898, and Eva M., born circa 1902.

             +   48      iv.    Katharine WORTZ, born July 1871; married William YOUNG.

 

     16.  Anna Maria4 HEUSS (Martin Ludwig3, Georg Philipp2, Johann Peter Hartmann1) was born 25 January 1835 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg, Germany.  In 1853 she came to the United States with her parents and three siblings, settling first in Marion County, Ohio and then in Mercer County, Ohio. Mary, as she was called, died 4 July 1896 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana at age 61.  She was buried in Union City Cemetery.

     Mary married Henry GIMBEL 25 January 1856, likely in Mercer County. Henry was born 29 July 1829 in Arheilgen, Darmstadt, Germany. His father, whose name may have been Peter, supposedly was a shepherd and worked for the government in Darmstadt.  According to his obituary Henry emigrated to the United States in 1849.  However, this date is in error since military papers show Henry serving in the military in Germany in 1851. He began his service as a Musketeer War-Reservist in the 3rd Company, 4th Infantry Regiment on 15 June 1850 and continued serving at least through 15 December 1851.  At the time of her death, Florence (Gimbel) Todd, Henry’s granddaughter, had his original army discharge papers and death notice. It is more likely that Henry was the Heinrich Gimbel on the passenger list for the ship ‘Admiral’, sailing from Le Havre, France and arriving in New York 13 July 1952. This Heinrich was aged 23 (or born circa 1829 as was Henry) and his occupation was a joiner. Traveling with him was a Dorothea Gimbel, age 19. Her relationship to Henry was not given. It is known that upon arriving in the United States Henry settled first in Cincinnati, Ohio.  After a short stay he went to Union City, Randolph County, Indiana and for eight years worked in the blacksmithing department of the Big Four Railroad.  He then started the first blacksmith shop in Union City at the northwest edge of town, which has since become a landmark. Henry died of pneumonia 9 January 1903 in Union City at age 73, and was buried 12 January 1903 in Union City Cemetery. Strangely, a printed funeral card for him lists his date of death as 16 January 1903, however his death certificate says 9 January.

     Known children of Anna Maria4 HEUSS and Henry GIMBEL were as follows:

             +   49       i.    William5 GIMBEL, born 3 December 1856 in Union City, Darke County, Ohio; married Mary Magdalena KRANER.

                  50      ii.    Mary GIMBEL was born 29 May 1859 in Union City, Darke County, Ohio and died in 1862 in Union City, Darke County, Ohio at age 3.  She was buried in Union City Cemetery, Randolph County, Indiana. The story of Mary’s death is that a band of gypsies camping across the road from her parents’ home failed to extinguish their campfire when they broke camp in the morning. Mary wandered over to the smoldering fire, her dress ignited, and she burned to death.

According to his obituary, Martin worked for a short time at the Union City Carriage Factory but by 1910 had opened his East Elm Street blacksmith shop which he ran for 25 years. He lived in a room in the back of his blacksmith workshop. Martin never married.

                  54      vi.    Lewis GIMBEL was born 6 October 1868 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana.  He died 1 April 1957 in Union City at age 88 and was buried 4 April 1957 in Lisbon Cemetery, Union City. Lewis operated a blacksmith shop in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana for several years. He never married.

Rose in Hartford City, Blackford County, Indiana when he met Elmeretta ‘Retta’ BARR, a cook in the hotel. They married 16 September 1900.  Retta, a Quaker, was born 5 March 1873 in Noble Township, Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of Godfrey Judy and Mary Ann Brindle. She married William Barr 28 December 1886 in Union City, Indiana and when he died she moved to Hartford City.  Peter and Retta settled in Pike Township, Jay County, Indiana and Peter took up farming.  Retta died 2 December 1921 in Jay County, Indiana at age 48, and was buried in Lisbon Cemetery, Union City.  Peter then moved back to Union City and operated a blacksmith shop. He died 15 October 1954 in Union City at age 79, and was buried in Lisbon Cemetery.

                  58       x.    Baby GIMBEL was born in February 1878 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana.  He died in February 1878 in Union City and was buried in Old Lisbon Cemetery in that city.

                  59      xi.    Dora GIMBEL was born 23 March 1880 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana.  She married Alva M. WALKER 6 September 1911 in Indiana and they settled in Jackson Township, Darke County, Ohio.  Dora died 3 January 1933 in Union City at age 52, and was buried 7 January 1933 in Union City Cemetery. Alva was born in June 1879 in Indiana, the son of John G. and Sarah J. Walker. After Dora died in 1933, he supposedly married a woman from Greenville who had a daughter named Nancy. The wife died and Alva continued to live with the daughter. They did not marry but had a daughter who was put in a children's home near Greenville. Alva died 30 December 1951 in Ohio at age 72

 

     17.  Johann Friedrich4 HEUSS (Martin Ludwig3, Georg Philipp2, Johann Peter Hartmann1) was born 13 November 1840 in Neckarweihingen, Wurttemberg, Germany. In 1853 he came to America with his parents and three siblings, settling first in Marion County, Ohio and then in Mercer County, Ohio. At some point Johann Friedrich shortened his name to Fred and used the spelling ‘Heis’ for his surname. Fred served in the Civil War as a private in Company D, 62nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry and was the first person in Mercer County to put up his own ice for the summer in a pond near his home.  He was Evangelical and was an active member of the Bethel Church.
