NOTE: Some records show Oliver's last name simply as Hein. Do not know which it should be. On most of his children's records, the name is Heins.

Elmira and Oliver were married on 24 Feb 1884 in Linn County, Iowa. They had two children.

Children of Elmira Maria Hefling and Oliver Heins:

  1. Jesse Edward Heins
  2. Emma Pearl Heins

Very little is known about their life together. On the 1910 census, Oliver is a widower and farming in Grant Twp, Linn County, Iowa. Living with him are his children; Jesse, with his wife and young daughter, and Pearl. 

Oliver's obituary in the Center Point Independent states, "Mr. Heins was a good man, a highly respected citizen and one who held the esteem and confidence of all who knew him. He was public spirited and gave efficient service in various capacities to this community." His funeral services were conducted at the Christian Church.
