The Heinles that came to america in 1750 from germany ... does anyone know why they immigrated? Family lore says they were persecuted for religion, but there's an argument over whether they were Lutherans or Jews. Can someone clarify for us?

In case you're still interested: A large segment of population left Germany during that period. some were Lutheran and some Catholic. all were either being persecuted or were simple very poor and looking for a better life. Did your Heinle come into Philadelphia, PN? Am searching for my husband's HEINLE ancestry. They were originally from PN, through OHIO, then to Michigan. anyone that would fit that description in your family tree?

My branch is Jewish. Julia Simon (b. Aug 1859 in Prussia) married a Heinle/Hinle and had a daughter Jenny in Aug 1879 in Mississippi.

I believe they traveled then up the Mississippi River to Cincinnati, where a prominent Jewish community was established.
