I have a Zacharias Heim in Germany md. to a Barbara. Is Zacharias surname Jewish? Zacharias and Barbara Heim's son Johannes David Heim came fr Nassau, Germany to the New World in mid or early 1700's. Was Lutheran, was living in Germantown twp, Philadelphia CO., PA and gave his oath 1764 in Northern Liberties twp, on the new testament, but there was another Heim from Bonn, Germany giving his oath on the old testament about the same time as our Heim's were. Thank you for any assistance.
