Biography

"Georg Heimbach of Seelbach, son of Jost Heimbach, born about 1605-10, judging by the ages of his children, was like his father an associate justice of the Hain Court, and died at Seelbach May 11, 1672. He paid the defense tax at Seelbach in 1637, which, again, hardly means that he was over 50, but that he was excused for some other reason. His wife was named Elisabeth, and judging by the fact that two Neusses or Niesses were godparents of her children, it is probable that her maiden name was Niess (a surname springing from the Christian name, Dionysius). Both of the Niess godfathers were from the Catholic part of Nassau-Siegen, and they, together with Elisabeth Heimbach, were perhaps children of a Johann Neuss or Niess, who was living at Eisern in the special tax list of 1599."[1]

Georg's third son Jacob was, like his father, an Associate Justice of the Hain Court.

Georg Heimbach of Seelbach was the godfather in 1641 of Georg, son of Johann and Christina Heimbach of Eiserfeld.[2]
