Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 21, 1864
Clayton County
Iowa, USA
Death: May 18, 1940
Iowa, USA

Anna Theresa Kafer Heacock was the daughter of Mathias Kafer and Dorathea Hartge Kafer. She married Aaron A Heacock on March 5, 1885 in Mosalem, Dubuque County, Iowa. To them were born the following children: Emily Heacock (1886-?), Edna Theresa Heacock Polfer(1887-1957), Florence E Heacock Kress (1890-?), Arvel B Heacock (1892-1970), Clarence B Heacock (1893-1974), Louis Heacock (1895-1918), Nettie Hazel Heacock Mueller (1897-1968), Delia Glen Heacock (1899-?), Dayton Heacock (1901-1972), and Gayle Heacock Dimmer (1904-?).

On the day her daughter Nettie was to be baptised "Catholic" (before her marriage to Alfred J Mueller), her brothers Clarence and Arvel stopped her from going to the church. They told her that her dad Aaron was going to whip her for not taking care of the cows and making sure they went down to get water. They tried their best to turn her around. She kept going to the church. When she returned home she marched straight up to her father and said "Well, did you have any trouble with the cows?". He replied "No, it was like God lead them straight to the pond and back, why?" She told him that she had prayed for that. It wasn't her father Aaron who was against her being Catholic, it was her mother. Her mother had a fit over it. (This info was provided by their Nettie's daughter Elizabeth "Betty" Mueller Ripley November 2012).
