Hooh! Please don't SHOUT. :^)

You didn't say *where* you or Charles were born. I have HEACKERs from TN (Grainger Co.) who originated in Prussia. Prior to that, they were in Augsburg, Bavaria. This bunch migrated to the U.S. in 1851 (the guys) and 1852 (the gals).

There was only one son born to this family: Edwin Wright HEACKER. He was the eldest of Dr. William Joseph HEACKER and Armilda Crawford WRIGHT's children. They were very wealthy. One of Edwin's sons became a Doctor as well.

Edwin & his siblings were:

o Edwin Wright HEACKER (b: 11-29-1857 in KY, Franklyn, Lexington; d: Dec 24, 1903 in TX, , Whitewright)
... +Margaret FOXDALE? (m: in TN, Grainger, Morristown)
o Sarah Aileen HEACKER (b: 3-4-1860 in KY, Franklyn, Lexington; d: 1923 in OH, , Cleveland)
... +? MURPHY
*2nd Husband of Sarah Aileen Heacker:
... +William Newton HATHAWAY (m: Nov 20 1876 in TX)
o Armilda Crawford HEACKER (b: 3-1-1868 in KY, Franklyn, Lexington; d: 1-11-1959 in TX, Hunt, Commerce)
... +Edward Ervin LOONEY (b: 12-31-1859 in TN, Hamblin,; m: 10-6-1884 in TN, Grainger, Beans Station; d: 11-15-1940 in TX, Hunt, Commerce)
o Mary Elizabeth HEACKER (b: 4-23-1870 in KY, Franklyn, Lexington; d: 2-9-1911 in TX, Dallas, Dallas)
... +William Larkin JOHNSON (m: Oct 6, 1884 in TN, , Tate Springs)
*2nd Husband of Mary Elizabeth Heacker:
... +William B. CRUTHERS
o Maude Madeline HEACKER (b: 10-18-1878 in IL, , Oblong; d: in TN, Knox, Knoxville)
... +Henry Larkin WRIGHT, Sr. (m: 12-30-1914 in TN, Grainger, Beans Station; d: 1929 in TN, Grainger, Beans Station)
o Ida Langford HEACKER (b: 4-23-1881 in TN, Grainger, Beans Station; d: 1-12-1929 in TN, Grainger, Beans Station)

So, Edwin came to TX and was born in 1857. There's probably another generation between your father and Edwin, but I don't have any info on Edwin's family. *If* you're descended from Edwin.

Good luck. If you would like more info, check my homepage at http://Welcome.to/TheHeackerFamily or write me at EGLooney@USA.Net.
