Samuel Heitshu's great great grandfather, Jacob Heidschuh, was born in Bavaria and immigrated to Philadelphia in 1728. The Heitshu family later settled in the Lancaster County area of Pennsylvania. Samuel's father, William, was a haberdasher in Lancaster and was in particular a maker of hats.
Samuel served as an infantryman beginning in 1863 for the 48th Pennsylvania Militia during the Civil War. Surviving that he moved out to San Francisco to make his fortune. It was there he met and married Miss Amie Lunt. Together they had four children, Gertrude Elizabeth (Shepard), Alice Harriet (Ainsworth), Amy Lunt (Sewall), and Alan Lunt Heitshu.
Samuel went into the wholesale drug business in San Francisco with Redington and Co. and later moved to Portland, Oregon establishing the successful wholesale drug company of Heitshu Grant & Co. After his wife, Amie, passed away in 1912, he returned to the San Francisco area, where he died in 1918.
