Re: Anna Eva HEYD, late 1600's FR/GER

In Reply to: Re: Anna Eva HEYD, late 1600's FR/GER by R.T. Hyde (Heyd) of 61

Anna Eva Heyd (Heydt, Hayd), born 1680, and married 1706 to Hans Georg Kurtz, was the daughter of Hans Georg Heyd (christened 19 February 1637 in Grötzingen and buried there 16 May 1692). His second wife, who was Anna Eva's mother, was Anna Eva (Daeschner) Geiss (died 1694), widow of Jacob Geiss. Hans Georg Heyd, in turn, was the son of Martin Heyd (born about 1611, probably in Grötzingen, and died there 26 September 1675). Martin's wife Anna was born about 1616 and died 14 September 1688, also in Grötzingen. They were known to be the parents of ten children, of whom Hans Georg Heyd was the oldest. This is as far back as the family has been traced with any certainty, because the Grötzingen church records only go back to 1636. However, the surname was recorded in Grötzingen as early as 1482. The modern spelling of the name is Heidt and some descendants still live in Grötzingen. Another immigrant who arrived on the ship with Johann David Mussgnug was Jacob Heit (Heydt), a great-grandson of the aforementioned Martin Heyd. Jacob, born in 1717, settled in District Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania, where he died in 1781. He was the father of eleven children and still has many descendants in Berks County today. The spelling they use is "Heydt."
