born on 16th January 1845 at Hollen, Westphalia, house No. 22
died on 19th July 1917 at Isselhorst, Westphalia, house No. 61
 
 
Friedrich Wilhelm Heitmann was a son of Friedrich Christian Heitmann, from Hollen 22, and of Christine Elisabeth Reckmann from Steinhagen.
 
He was married to

Johanne Hornberg

from Isselhorst 61 and had 6 Kinder with her; the fifth of whom was

Heinrich Heitmann

. Wilhelm Heitmann had a nail-smithy (a little manufactory where special nails were produced).
 
The last

letter which Wilhelm Heitmann wrote to the family of his son Heinrich

in 1917, few months before his death, survived the decades and can be read and looked at.

For his whole lifetime Wilhelm Heitmann never entered a boat. He said: &dbquo;water has no timbers“. He owned a "high-bike" and, together with a friend and neighbour,  invented a

sewing and planting machine

(patented, picture see

German page

).
