Notes:  Heio, better known to his relatives and friends as Hy, was born in 1866 at Oesfriesland, Germany.  He came to America in 1885, locating near Gibson City.  Later he farmed with his father near Roberts and then moved to Manson, Iowa.  After his parents died he lived and worked in a hotel in Fargo, North Dakota, until he retired.

Hy had been ailing during his last five years from a heart ailment.  In the spring of 1938, due to his poor health, Hy quit working at the hotel in Fargo and moved to Roberts, Illinois, to reside with Mrs. Johanna Rath, his sister.

Hy and Johanna resided together until August 1941 when she gave up her home.  Hy then moved to the farm home of his niece, Mrs. George Lee and family at Germanville township, Illinois.  Although his health continued to fail he was up and around as usual on the morning of 11 Nov 1942.  That afternoon he shaved himself and went outdoors to feed and water the hogs, which he so much enjoyed doing.  Shortly after 5:30 o'clock he talked with Walter Lee when he came in from the fields.  Walter went about his work and did not see Hy until he went after the milk pails in a house where they were kept, where he found Hy on the floor dead.

At the time of his passing Hy was 76 and was survived by his sister, Johanna, three nieces; Mrs. George Lee, of near Strawn; Mrs. John Kietzman, of Roberts; Mrs. Harry Mueller of Saginaw, Michigan; and one nephew, George J. Rath of Petaluma, California.  Funeral services were held from the Danfort funeral home in Roberts on 14 Nov 1942.  Hy was buried at Lyman Township Cemetery's Section A, Plot 65.
