Excerpt from History of the Heatwole Family: From the Beginning of the Seventeenth Century to the Present Time (1907)

It will be observed by reading the Chronik der Familie Hiitwohl that our ancestor Mathias Hiitwohl left the Father land with wife and two children, but no record of them is to be had in connection with his landing at Philadelphia in 1748. It is most probable that his wife and two children did not survive the sea voyage incident to German emigrants of that time. In proof of this belief Jacob Hiitwohl quotes from The Germans in the United States by Rudolf Cronau, Chapters IV and V, where is related the cruel practices of ship captains of packing emigrants into their ships ln num bers far beyond the capacity of their vessels. From this condition hundreds of emigrants lost their lives during the voyage across the Atlantic, and Mathias Hiitwohl's wife and children must have shared the fate of these unfortunate ones. Another View of the matter ought to be given here. It is known to have been the practice of the United States emigrant officials not to include the names of the children of immigrants under sixteen years of age on their lists, thus it is possible for the children to have survived the voyage, and that their descendants are still living in Pennsylvania or elsewhere. While back of these views are mere evidence of fact, the first seems more plausible.
