Heise, Arthur (1918 - 1953) - male
b. 7 JAN 1918 in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, OH
d. 10 JAN 1953 in the Korean War

father: Heise, Ferdinand (1894 - 1966)
mother: Fitz, Ida (1897 - 1980)

                Arthur graduated from Parma-Shaff High School in 1936, he then attended Max Hays Trade School on Eagle Ave. (now Herman Ave.) in Cleveland, Ohio. The Max Hays Trade School had a four year carpenter's apprentice course where Art studied part-time and worked for his father the rest of the time.
                Art was one of the first men to be drafted by the new Selective Service 25 February 1941. He was inducted at Ft. Hays, Ohio on 28 February 1941 and then on to Chanute Field, IL for Airplane Mechanic training. In November of 1942 Art went to flight school training in Santa Ana, CA and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant (SN O-750985) in the US Army Air Corps 28 July 1943, then on to "four engine pilot" school in Roswell, NM until 4 October 1943. From 5 October 1943 through 31 December 1943 Art was stationed with the 678th Sq., 444th Bomber Group in Great Bend, KS.
                On 1 January 1944, the 444th BG was deployed to India where it stay until 14 January 1945 when it then deployed to Tinian of the Mariana Islands. Art was commissioned a 1st Lieutenant 1 March 1944. Art was with the 444th BG until 24 July 1945 when he was detached and sent back to the "states" to be separated. Art was separated from active service 6 January 1946.
                Lt. Arthur Heise flew 28 combat missions and had 350 combat hours in B-24's and B-29's during this time. On 14 February 1945 he was awarded the "Distinguished Flying Cross" in General Order 42 from the 20th Air Force for the period from 9 May 1944 to 7 January 1945. He also received three "Air Medals" during his time overseas.
                After Art was separated from active service, he returned to Great Bend, KS and worked for Jeanette's father on their farm. Art then moved to Cleveland, Ohio and worked for his father in Heise Homes, Inc. At night he would play the piano in nightspots in and around Cleveland (Art was an accomplished pianist). He then returned to Kansas and worked on Jeanette's father's farm in Great Bend.
                Lt. Arthur Heise was promoted to Captain in the USAF Reserves 13 February 1950, and was recalled to active duty 26 February 1951 when he was confirmed as a Captain in the USAF. Capt. Heise was transferred to the 372nd Bomber Sq., 307th Bomber Wing, 20th Bomber Command, SAC in Kadina AFB in Okinawa 1 October 1952 after receiving refresher training in the B-29.
                Capt. Arthur Heise was the Aircraft Commander of a B-29 Bomber flying out of Kadina AFB in Okinawa during the Korean War. On 10 January 1953, he was on a bombing mission over the Anju Marshaling Yard, as part of "Stardust" flight--Art's plane was Stardust 39--when his B-29 (Aircraft Number 44-61802) was hit by enemy fire from "Migs" immediately prior to bombs away (2038 hours). Stardust's fighter escort was not with them because they had been briefed to join up with Stardust 37, 30 minutes later--either Stardust was early or the fighter escort was late.  Immediately following bombs away and while still under attack the aircraft started losing altitude. A "Mayday" call was received from the aircraft at 2048 hours. At 2053 hours the aircraft commander reported "Hit Bad, have wounded men, will try to get to K-13". After crossing the river Chinnampo, at 2106 hours the aircraft commander reported "We are bailing out, number-three engine on fire". Twelve of thirteen members of the crew bailed out--and reported that they never saw Capt. Heise' parachute. Capt. Heise flew the burning B-29 toward friendly lines whil eUSAF Fighter Jets followed him, however, the B-29 continued to descend until it hit the side of a mountain (BT 7550) at approximately 2117 hours and exploded. It is believed that Capt. Heise was trying to get as close to friendly lines as possible before deciding to bail out, and possibly thought that he could make it over the ridge of the mountain that he finally crashed into. When friendly forces got to the wreckage, there was no trace of Capt. Heise. All twelve crew members were repatriated under "Operation Big Switch", and another POW (a Major David F. MacGhee)reported that a Chinese interrogator informed him that the North Koreans had found Capt. Heise' remains in the wreckage. Capt. Heise was declared dead 12 January 1954 and a M.I.A. marker was placed in Arlington National Cemetery, Memorial Section H-391.
Capt. Heise flew 16 combat missions and had 110 combat hours in B-29's and was awarded a fourth "Air Medal" during this time. He was awarded the "Silver Star" and "Purple Heart" posthumously.
                Capt. Heise' Citation for the Silver Star was authorized by the Far East Air Forces Headquarters General Orders Number 215 on 2 May 1953 and read as follows: "Captain Arthur Heise, AO750985, United States Air Force. Captain Heise distinguished himself by gallantry in action against an enemy of the United Nations as Aircraft Commander of a B-29 type aircraft, 372d Bombardment Squadron, 307th Bombardment Wing, Medium, on 10 January 1953. On that date, approximately five minutes before reaching the assigned target, two members of the crew were wounded and two engines and the elevator surfaces were so seriously damaged by enemy fighter attacks that it was impossible to maintain the assigned bombing altitude. Considering the importance of the target, the Auju Marshaling Yards, Captain Heise elected to complete the mission, and descended to emergency altitude to continue the bomb run. [It should be pointed out that a big part of a bomber's defense is to stay with the flight group, once separated from the flight group, the enemy fighters will be drawn to the lone bomber like wolves to a wounded calf.] Despite continued enemy fighter attacks, Captain Heise successfully bombed the assigned target, and headed the aircraft toward a friendly forward airfield. Even though abandonment of the aircraft was imminent, Captain Heise chose to attempt reaching an emergency airfield in order to provide greater safety for his wounded crew members and insure immediate medical attention. However, afire in the aircraft necessitated a bail-out. Captain Heise's decision to delay abandonment of the aircraft greatly enhanced the chances of survival of his wounded crew members by allowing them sufficient time to prepare for bail-out. The exceptional gallantry and devotion to duty displayed by Captain Heise were in keeping with the highest traditions of the service, and reflected great credit upon himself, the Far East Air Forces, and the United States Air Force."
                It only needs to be said that Art never forgot that he was an enlisted man first and all his crew genuinely liked and respected him, as evident by the communications that Art's wife has received since the end of the Korean War.
                Jeanette remarried one year after Art's death on 29 January 1954 in Great Bend, Barton County, KS to Robert William Earl, son of Orrin Kinsley Earl and Dorothea Rouse. Jeanette and Robert had two sons who are half-brothers to Richard and Robert. At some point after Jeanette married Robert Earl, her two sons from Art, Richard and Robert, changed their last name from Heise to Earl. It is unclear, at this time, whether Robert William Earl adopted Richard and Robert Heise. Jeanette is buried next to Art in Arlington National Cemetery (or so we have been told).

                When Ferdinard was twenty years old he was brought over to the USA in 1914 by his twenty-three year old brother Otto, along with his seventeen year old sister Olga. Ferd and Olga traveled overland from Plock, Kingdom of Poland, Russia to Warsaw, and then to Bremen, Germany and boarded on 16 May 1914 the ship "SS Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm" of the North German Lloyd Steamship Line and sailed on 17 May 1914 to New York City, NY arriving on 25 May 1914 at Ellis Island, NY.
Ida was born 30 November 1897 in Wilkow, Kingdom of Poland, Russia. When Ida was sixteen years old she was brought over to the USA in 1913 by her older brother Gustav. Gus traveled overland from Briwilno Wulka, (Poland) Russia to Warsaw, and then to Bremen, Germany and boarded on 8 July 1912 the ship "SS Koenigin Luise" of the North German Lloyd Steamship Line and sailed to New York City, NY arriving on 17 July 1912 at Ellis Island, NY. Gus at first stayed in New York and Connecticut, and then moved to Cleveland, OH.
                Ida traveled overland from Warsaw, (Poland) Russia to Bremen, Germany and then boarded on 10 June 1913 the ship "SS Kaiser Wilhelm II" of the North German Lloyd Steamship Line--Express Service--and sailed on 11 June 1913 to New York City, NY arriving on 18 June 1913 at Ellis Island, NY.
                Ferd and Ida attended, met, and married in the Daisy Ave. German Church of God in Cleveland, OH--the Pastor was the Rev. Karl Giesser who married them 2 December 1916. Gustave and Ferd were apprenticed together to a cabinet maker in or near Warsaw, Poland before they came to the USA, thus, it is possible that Ferd and Ida met through the former relationship of Gus and Ferd. However, what is known is that, at first, Gus did not like Ferd and sent Ida to Connecticut, where she was an upstairs maid for a doctor, in an attempt to keep Ferd away from his younger sister. When Ferd did learn where Ida was, he went and brought her back to Cleveland, Ohio, where they then were married. Gus seems to have changed his mind about Ferd after they were married because Gus supported Ferd on a number of occasions there after.
Ferd became a USA Citizen on 16 March 1921 in Cleveland, OH.
                Ferd began working as a carpenter on various construction sites, and would travel--in rain or snow--to the work site on a bicycle with his toolbox tied to the bicycle. One of the first construction sites that Ferd worked on as a carpenter was the first "High Level Bridge" in Cleveland. This bridge crosses the Cuyahoga River and connects Detroit Ave. and Superior Ave., it is now known as Veterans Memorial Bridge. Ferd then began work as a carpenter on the construction of the Terminal Tower Building in downtown Cleveland--this building is like a combination of the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station in New York City--and the Terminal Tower Building did, at one time, serve the same purpose in Cleveland as Grand Central Station does in New York City, all the railroads came together under the building. Next Ferd worked on the construction of City Hospital (now known as Metro-General Hospital) in Cleveland.
                During this time Ferd was determined to begin his own construction company. Ferd had two problems though, first, his native language was German and it took a number of years for him to learn sufficient English in order to operate in the business world, and second, was the lack of money to start a business. It took Ferd twelve years, but he was able in 1926 to buy a lot in Parma at 6915 Snow Road (near Ridge Road) and build a house. Ferd's family lived in the house for about six months until he could sell it. The proceeds from the sell of this house was the seed money for Ferd's construction company which he named "Heise Homes."
                It was during this time that the Daisy Ave. German Church of God decided that they wanted to build a new building so they could stop worshipping in the house that served that purpose. The people of the congregation mistakenly thought that Ferd was rich because he had started his own construction company, and asked him to head the building committee and to construct the new church building. However, some members of the building committee suggested changes in the plans through-out the construction but, left it up to Ferd to try to get approval from the whole building committee--which Ferd discovered was close to impossible--and almost led to a nervous breakdown for Ferd. In addition, some members assumed that Ferd could pay for the added cost of all these changes. This caused great personal difficulty for Ferd and for his infant construction company and this, plus (even more importantly) dissatisfaction with the current pastor, finally led to a dispute within the church that resulted in a split of the congregation. The Heise', Conrad's, Drager's, Fitz's, Keene', Schattschneider's, Yeske's, and other families associated with the Heise' left the Daisy Ave. German Church of God, and started attending the English Church of God. A few years later, in the early 1930's, Ferd decided to return to the Daisy Ave. German Church of God, possibly because Pastor Warner--whom Ferd thought was a very good pastor--had become pastor of the church.
                Ferd continued to work as a carpenter for other construction companies and to build houses with his own construction company, Heise Homes--his best year was in 1932 when he built 15 houses. Ferd built houses in four main areas of Cleveland--Kamms Corner area, the Fulton Ave./Memphis Ave. area, South Hills area, and the Parma area. Altogether Ferd built around 100 houses. In the mid-1930's Ferd expanded into selling used houses and became a Real Estate Broker. Heise Homes had four locations, first at 95th and Lorain Ave. (rented), second at 126th and Lorain Ave. (rented), third at 2424 Broadview Road (built, owned, &sold), and fourth at 5649 Ridge Road (built & owned).
                In the early 1950's, Ferd had a cataract operation on his left eye, and was instructed by the doctors not to do any work for several months. However, shortly after the operation Ferd started cleaning out construction material (concrete blocks) from the basement of his new home at 6396 Manchester Road in Parma, Ohio. The strain caused a complication and Ferd lost the eye, which resulted in a glass eye.
                During the 1950's Ferd began to turn the business over to his son Harry and began to vacation in Florida during the winter season. Ferd finally bought a home in Hollywood, Florida and semi-retired around 1960.
                Ferdinard and Ida are buried next to each other in Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery, Olmsted Township, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

                Harry graduated from Parma-Shaff High School in 1940. He then went to work in a high paying factory job ($36.00 per week).
                Harry served from 6 April 1942 through 1 January 1947 in the Army Air Force during World War II. He "flew night interception missions and offensive intruder missions (night)" in a P-61 "Blackwidow" nightfighter--a twin engine, twin boom, two man (pilot and navigator/radar observer) interceptor. Harry was commissioned a 2nd Lt. (SN O-746108) on 20 May 1943 and served with the 426th Night Fighter Squadron, from 23 February 1944 to 30 June 1945.
                "February 1945 saw the last aerial victory for the P-61 in the CBI. On February 8 the 426th's 1st Lt. Harry W. Heise [who was awarded the "Distinguished Flying Cross" on this night, see below], and F/O Robert C. Brock were on patrol in the Laohokow area when GCI vectored them to a plane that had just dropped its bombs. Brock made radar contact and the chase was on. For fifteen to twenty minutes they chased the enemy, going through several hard turns. Finally, visual contact was made; they were 700 ft. from the target. As he closed to 350 ft., Heise opened fire; the Lily bomber exploded. (Northrop P-61 Black Widow, Chapter 7)
                Harry's award of the "Distinguished Flying Cross" read in part as follows:
                ". . . . On the night of  8 February 1945 they were notified that enemy aircraft were approaching the Chinese base at which they were stationed. Although they knew the enemy was but a short distance from their base, they immediately went to their fighter planes and prepared to take off to intercept the enemy. As they started the engines of the aircraft, the enemy passed over the field and dropped fragmentation bombs in the taxiway and runway. Although unexploded bombs remained on these strips, they taxied to the runway and as they were taking off a second wave of enemy bombers dropped bombs that struck between the two planes. The outstanding courage that these pilots demonstrated in taking off while the field was under attack and before their aircraft were properly warmed reflects great credit upon themselves and upon the Army Air                                      Forces. Carl J. Absmeier, O-662618, Captain, Air Corps, Pilot and Harry W. Heise, O-746108, First Lieutenant, Air Corps, Pilot."
                Harry was also awarded the "Air Medal" and attained the rank of Captain.

                Karolina Szachowitz was born about 1831 and died 3 April 1864 in Zakrzewo, Kingdom of Poland, Russia, just thirteen days after her newborn son Chrystyan died. Five weeks later, Heinrick married the twenty year old Karolina Reinholtz, who was born about 1844. Three and a half years later, Heinrick died.
                Two years after Heinrick died, Karolina married her second husband, Jakob Wehrmann, on 9 December 1869 in the Wyszogrod (pronounced Vis-zo-grot) Lutheran Church.
                Samuel and Ludwig may have been raised by their step-mother and her second husband, Jakob, or they may have been raised by relatives.
                The only thing known about Heinrick's parents is their names and that they died before Heinrick did, however, Heinrick's father's first name is not positively clear from the church documents written in Polish.
