Scott, My name is Alex. Strohn My maiden name is Heise
I have at least 100 letters and personal information on a Patrick j. (P.J.) Hyland. He traveled a great deal and the letters begin some time around 1869. My father Charles Heise of Omaha, Nebraska gave them to me yesterday 9-23-06 and it seems as though my family knew him well. The name I reconize on the letters I believe to be that of my grandmothers father on my fathers side. Jacob Kirchbraun.
The letters are from sisters and brothers and friends of P.J. He seems to be a very interesting fellow, having lived in Omaha, Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, and fought in a war in a place called Balanga,Philipine Island. I have much more information, so let me know if you are interested. My e-mail is Have a good day. Alexandra
