As far as I know, all the forms of this name--Hightshoe, Highshoe, Heightchew, and so on--are variations of the name of Jacob Heidschuh, who arrived in Pennsylvania Aug. 24, 1728, on the ship Mortonhouse, from the Palitinate region of Germany. (Daniel I. Rupp, A Collection of Upwards of 30,000 Names of German, Swiss, Dutch, French, and Other Immigrants in Pennsylvania from 1727 to 1776. Boston: Genealogical Publishing, 1975. P. 56.
