      Esther Herdt Hensley's comments about Heinrich's early life in the USA: "They came to the United States in 1906, and settled in the Sugar City, Ordway areas in Crowley County, Colorado where they worked sugar beets. They then moved to Scottsbluff, Nebraska, then McGrew, Nebraska, and then southern Sioux county in the Spotted Tail community, north of Mitchell. In 1920 the family moved to Torrington, Wyoming. They farmed north of Torrington, and then for Amermon. When they decided to give up farming they purchased a home in the city of Torrington. Grandpa didn't get to move in as he got sick and was taken to the Hospital were he passed away. The house was located at 1810 East C Street, in Torrington. Grandma lived there until she was put into a nursing home in Torrington, were she passed away."
