Looking for Herfy/Heify maraige
« on: Tuesday 23 March 10 16:53 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone,
I have relented and have agreed to do my husbands family tree.  I have some information about these people but not a great deal. I am looking for information on Sabin Herfy or Heify.
 He  had a daughter who is named Lena or Evalyna who we believe was also born in Rochester.  Sabin came from Germany and travelled back and forth to both Britain and Germany.  In 1902 he returned to NY as a widow after visiting Germany.  I would be gratefull if anyone can find any information about his death and the birth of his children.

I also believe that Lena married in America and she married Harry Chester as I cannot find a marraige in Britain for her although some of her children were born here.  One of her sons was born in Rochester NY in 1895.  His name was Harry William.

I hope someone can help with this search.

Thanks for looking

Hi Jac.

Just to clarify:- Sabin Heify/Herfy was born about 1840 Germany. He appears in the Rochester City Directory for 1888/1889/90 boards 13 Klueh park. labourer. There is no 1890 census which destroyed by fire and he does'nt seem to appear in 1900. Anc..try tree has Sabin married to Katherine Hauk. 3 children listed - one of which is Lena. The other 2 are Daniel 1873 Germany and Barbara 1884 New York. Barbara married to William J Liebeck born 1884 New York.
Evalyna was born 1877 in Germany and married Harry Chester (born 1871) Suffolk. England perhaps in the USA.
Evalyna died in 1947 England Harry Chester Died in England 1948.

The son Harry William Chester born 1895 Rochester. Monroe. New York Married Hilda Florence Perry. Harry died 1971 in England. Hilda died 1976 in England. There daughter Pamela was born 1921 in Scotland and Died 2007 England.

Just to help a little more with a time frame. When did Evalyna and Harry appear in England ? When was the first child born in England ?

Anc..try having technically problem - can't check any further at moment.
IF the birth were in New York City -  BMD Records are the site below:-

Rochester is about an 8 hour drive from New York City today, so I wouldn't expect to find anything there unless you know they were in New York City at some point.

There are some city directories for Rochester that you can browse here:

There is information about requesting look-ups in New York state vital records index here:
