Biographical or historical data
Samuel Percy Heineken was born to Samuel and Jannet (Donaldson) Heinken in Sidmouth, Devon, England on July 2, 1802. He had several siblings including Jesse (b. 1799), Ann (b. 1800), William, Christian W., and Thomas (b. 1804). They lived in Clifton, Gloucestershire, England. At the age of 14, Samuel moved to the United States with his brother Christian along with some of their Donaldson cousins and eventually settled in Ohio, although Samuel eventually returned to England in 1825. Samuel P. Heineken married Caroline Williams (1820-1889), daughter of timber merchant William and Winifred Williams, in Clifton, Gloucestershire, England on December 17, 1839. They had several children including Frances Caroline (b. 1840), Jessie Mary Ann (1842-1919), Emily Winifred (b. 1843), Christian William (b. 1845), Samuel Travers (b. 1846), Mary Margareta (b. 1848), and Henry Jones (b. 1849). Samuel Heineken worked in iron and coal mining in Wales, living in Swansea, Llanelly, and Glamorganshire. Samuel and Thomas Heineken kept in touch with their cousins and siblings living in Ohio. Samuel Heineken returned to the United States in 1852, this time with his family in tow. The family settled in Edinburgh, Johnson County, Indiana by 1860 where they owned a saloon and millinery store. In 1861, they moved to Franklin, Indiana. Samuel Heineken enlisted as a private in Company G of the 3rd Indiana Cavalry Regiment on August 25, 1862 during the U.S. Civil War and rose to the rank of quartermaster sergeant.
