It's possible they're related to my husband's Heineys. They are not sons of my husband's direct ancestor Michael Heiney, but I believe he had brothers and male cousins that I haven't investigated yet. So they could be Michael's nephews or cousins from further back.

Hi Lawrence,

I do not have an Emmanuel or George Heiney. No one in my husband's line lived in Indiana; they did live in Ohio but it was in the east on the WV border. I will let you know if I come across Emmanuel or George though! -Sarah

There are still two Jacob Heineys--the first is Jacob 1761- bef. 1765 and the second is Jacob 1765-1834. The brothers were not merged together. The only problem now is that you need to merge their fathers together. Right now they are saved as an Unmerged Match. -Sarah

Hi Lawrence! You're very welcome, and welcome to WikiTree! I recommend you first check out the guidelines for Pre-1500 certification here and here. As far as sources, they are mostly available in books, some online areas, and such. But concrete sources for them are pretty hard to find!
