While I was not able to find any of the specific names you mentioned, I do know there were (and still are) several Hiestand families in the northwestern parts of Darke County, Ohio, mainly around the Rossburg area in Allen Township. At one time there was a one-room school called the Hiestand School, but I do not know exactly where it was located. It was probably near the Dutch-Webster Cemetery near where my father lives, west of Rossburg. There are some Hiestand burials there and some families still living in the area. The first burial in the cemetery was in 1845 and there are still a few burials once in a while.
I know that's not much help, but maybe a direction in which to look. Let me know if there's anything else I can do.
