Muellers of Brooklyn, NY
Posted by: Ed Heinz (ID *****2814) Date: March 19, 2011 at 09:48:01
  of 1689

I'm seeking information on my g-g-grandmother Helena "Lena" Mueller who emigrated from Bavaria to Brooklyn in 1857 at age 12. Don't know who accompanied her. Between 1857 and 1873, she married and had 2 or 3 children, including sons Heinrich (1866) and Phillip (1888). The third unknown child was born and died between 1857 and 1900. In 1873, she married my g-g-grandfather Egbert Heinze, who emigrated from Saxony to Brooklyn, NY in 1869 (at age 26) with his brother Emil (age 15). Egbert and Helena had 5 children together, and Helena's sons Heinrich and Phillip lived with them for a time. At some point, they moved to New Britain, CT and then to Newark, NJ and ultimately Bloomfield, NJ. One fly in the ointment is that it's uncertain whether Mueller was Helena's maiden name or that of her first husband (possibly Ferdinand Mueller). Any info anyone can provide about Helena, Heinrich, and Phillip will be much appreciated.
