Heinrich emigrated from Germany and settled in St. Louis where he married Wilhelmine Meske, from Germany, on April 27, 1856.
According to the 1900 census they both came to America in 1854.
Sometime before 1870, the family moved to a farm in Gasconade county in central Missouri.
They had six children - Johann (John), Frederich (Fred), Alwine, Emielia (Emily), and Heinrich (Henry) Jr, and August. All born in Missouri.
In the 1880 census, the family is joined by Ernstine, wife of Johann, and their daughter Emilie. August is no longer listed and presumably died.
