In Porto/Portugal leben auch Hehn´s!
Ich heisse Mariana, bin 1964 in Porto geboren und habe drei Geschwister (geboren 1963, 1966 und 1967).
Unsere Mutter ist 1957 als entsandte Lehrkraft an die Deutsche Schule zu Porto gekommen, hat einen Portugiesen geheiratet und lebt heute noch in Porto.
Sie ist 1929 in Schoenstein, bei Wissen an der Sieg /Deutschland geboren .
Ihr Vater, Hermann Karl Hehn (geboren 14.07.1888) und ihre Mutter, Mathilde Hehn, geborene Reuber (*24 Juni 1896) waren beide aus Schoesntein.
Hermann Karl Hehn (unser Grossvater) war der zweite von 6 Kindern (Peter, als Kind gestorben, Anna *1890, Heinrich *1892, Joseph *1894 und Karl *1898) von Karl Hehn -unserem Urgrossvater (*14.07.1956, gestorben 1945) und von Pauline Demmer.
Karl´s Hehn Vater hiess Heinrich Hehn und ist 1817 ?/ 1819 ? in Luckenbach im Westerwald geboren. Er hatte einige Geschwister (Engelbert, Paula, Mariechen, und August).
Von unserer Mutter wissen wir, dass einige Onkel von ihrem Urgrossvater Heinrich nach den USA ausgewandert sind !
There are Hehn in Porto / Portugal too!
Our mother, born 1929 in Germany (Schönstein/ Sieg) was sent as a teacher to the German School Oporto 1957. She married our father, a portugiese and stayed in Portugal.
Her father Hermann Karl Hehn was born 1888 in Schönstein, her grandfather Karl Hehn was born 1856.
About her great-grandfather, Heinrich Hehn, I know that he was born around 1817 in Luckenbach, a village in Westerwald and that some of his fathers brothers emigrate to the USA in the 19 th century.
One of my brothers, Marcos Hehn Pinto da Silva produces a Sparkling wine, named "Familia Hehn" as a tribute to all Hehns´!

Hi everyone! I'm from Brazil! There are some Hehn overhere aswell. It seems they moved from Germany on the beginning of 1900 to here. My city, which is called Novo Hamburgo, was colonized by Germans mostly. It would be nice to know more about our origins. Cheers!

Message: I'm helping a friend to find his ancestors. Does anyone know about the Hehn family in/around Union County, Pennsylvania, around 1824? He has a great-grandmother by the name of Maria Hehn. She married Henry J. Jarrett and together they had 6 children: Percival Franklin, William Henry, Mary Alice, John Alfred, Issac Newton, and Susan Emma Jarrett. Maria's father's name is rumored to be John Hehn married to Ester Smith, but I can't find anything that would show that...not even in their family documents/collection. It has just been passed down orally. If anyone has any information about Maria's parents and/or siblings or any further information, I would really appreciate it!! Thanks!

Message: This is quite an interesting website I have stumbled upon. I didn't know the name Hehn was quite this popular, although I have yet to find a proper meaning of the name.
Nonetheless, this is what I know. My grandfather is one Mannfred Hehn, descendant of Herrmann Hehn and Lina Hehn. Mannfred's brother is Gert Hehn. The family descended from Westerwald in Germany, although they have since spread out a bit more. As far as I know, on this side of the family, the name is going to die out as all of Mannfred's children were daughters (including my mother). Only myself and a cousin of mine (who has a double last name - but she will marry and thus probably lose the Hehn) will be able to continue the lineage of this name.
Now, as a German speaker, I implore all of you to not pronounce it HANE. It is a German name and should be pronounced accordingly, the correct way should be just the way you spell it, or: HEH - uhn.

Kommentare:: so - another "hehn" :) Probably the last one to carry this name in our family: my sister Silke and I are daughters of Werner Hehn. He and his brother Kurt Hehn are the sons of Hermann Hehn.

He was supposed to be on the Titanic but missed it. He has one other brother and a sister appearently in the Chicago area. His parents were Anton Hehn and Lena Ottenbriet.

Message: I come from a line of Hehn's that origniated in Luisenhold Poland and migrated to Plotzk Bessarabia Russia around 1830. My Great great great Grandfather was Johann Hehn born aug 11, 1809. He had many children one of which was Johann Hehn, who also had a Johannes who had a son named Martin Lucas Hehn who was my grandfather. I have a fair amount of information branching from that orginal Johann Hehn, but I am stumped about information before that. If you are related I would love to hear from you especially if you have family history information.
