  • The Wiest Family History notes that Heiram Klinger Wiest served in Co. A, 50th Pennsylvania Infantry, during the Civil War. He and his brother Frantz were captured and interned in the infamous Libby Prison. Each morning, it was the practice to gather up the bodies of those who had died during the night and bury them -- a feeble attempt to control the diseases that ravaged so many of the prisoners. Frantz survived his internment and tells the following story: One morning when the "death wagon" was making its rounds, Heiram was very sick. The guards decided that he wouldn't survive day and threw him on the wagon with the others that were to be buried.3

  • Some sources list this Katie as a daughter of Frank and Mary Wiest, but that appears to be incorrect. In 1900, they had a daughter named Katie, who was then 11 years old, and Mary had given birth to only 2 children (Edward and Katie). Moreover, the date of birth listed for this Katie is roughly the same as the date of birth of Edward. For these reasons, this listing for a daughter Katie, born around October 1888 and died round the same time, appears to be incorrect.3
  • Infant Son Wiest was born circa 1 October 1888, Leck Kill, Northumberland County, PA.1
  • He died on 1 October 1888, Leck Kill, Northumberland County, PA.1
  • He was the son of George Franklin Weist and Mary Ann Kahler.
  • Infant Son Wiest was buried at St. John's Lutheran and Reformed Church Cemetery, Leck Kill, Upper Mahanoy Township, Northumberland County, PA.4
