Re: Heffners of Schuylkill Co. Pennyslvania

I have been away from family history hunting these past several months. Sorry I didn't respond to you sooner! My Heffners are in the Schuylkill Co. - Ashland/Gordon area of Pa. Do you have anything in your Heffner for that area? Also the spelling of the name apparently changed from Haeffner to Heffner at some time. My line goes like this:
John Haeffner-son Richard Haeffner and his son charles Heffner.
Charles was my grandfather who was raised by is mother's brother and took his last name - Krapf. So while my father, brother & I are Krapf's we are technically Heffners.
John was a school teacher. Richard was a mine worker who went blind and committed suicide after his wife died in childbirth with their son Charles. Charles' brother Herman lived in Ashland and had abt. 10 kids. He had sisters Emma & Elizabeth and there was a brother John but I think he had a different mother.
Should you find any connection in any of this, please contact me- I'd love to chat. Thanks- Valerie
