Michael Georg [Jarig] Jarigovich [son of Georg] Hein
  • Son of   Georg Hein and Elizabeth Hager (Hoeger) [NOTE:  Through his mother's family, the Hager/Hoeger,  Michael inherited a fortune which he used to buy 1/3 of a chutor with the Heim family.  He continued to be prosperous. Bought more land and raised Arabians, cavalry horses for the offiders of the Tsar Army and had horses which resemble our Clysdales, which are so popular here in the USA. He bought the Braun lot and house near the Lutheran Church in Borodino where he and his family would live.  For each son he bought lots, also, in Borodino.  The map drawn in 1940 shows the Hein lots.]
  • b. 21 Feb 1844 .... Bap. 23 Nov 1844 Borodino/ Bess. S. Russia  * [Blue  date found in old family bible.]  The red date found in  War rec. and Borodino Records which show his birth as 21 Feb 1844 Borodino in two places and on family page document in Borodino / Bess., S. Russia 
  • d.  20 Oct 1925 ??/ aft 1929  Borodino / Bess. [family memory:   Death Records of Borodino tell us he died in Borodino. Family members, who were living in Borodino at that time,  tell us he died about 1929 after his son Daniel who died in Nov. 1928. We have from him a postcard dated showing he was alive just before his 80th birthday.  Also it should be noted that Borodino was no longer part of Russia in 1929, it was part of Rumania after WW I.  The area returned to Russia after WW II, and, is presently part of the Russian State of Ukraine.
  • Religion:  Separtist (Differs from the rest of the family who were Evangelical Lutheran)  See section on Separatists on index page.

Christoph Hein

Who is the lonely Travelor
Racing the moonlight to my door
Racing his buggy over the plain
Pacing his steeds with the wind in the forest?
...The North wind that harries
...The South wind that tarries
Who is the lone Travelor come to my door?
Lonely no more.
[Old Russian verse, author unknown]

Background of Michael and Christina, nee Stehr, Hein

The following was recorded by Judy A. Remmick-Hubert  of her grandmother's,  Christine, nee Schweikert, Hein, consersation with Judy's mother, Lillian, nee Hein, Remmick in German. Later Lillian translated it into English for Judy, who took the bites and pieces of the conversation  about Christine's   mother-in-law Christina, nee Stehr, & Michael Jarigovich Hein and placed them in order that is more easily understood:. 

"When they were first married they moved to the Heim Chutor which was said to have been near the  Bersjon [Bersjohn, Beresan ] Borior [Border] which was owned by two Catholics, one being a Heim.  Michael Hein bought 1/3 rd of the property....  Later, he sold his share and returned to live in Bordoino / Bess. S. Russia.  He raised horses for the officers of the Tsar's Army as well as grapes. He had a huge cavern cellar where he held huge barrels made with American redwood supports and and oak..... Later in life he was in a solid financial  position and loan money to other German-Russians. He dealt with the Lloyds Bank of London which had a branch in Odessa.  

Description of given:

: "Every morning two servent girls would braid Christina's long golden hair and then twist it into a crown on top of her head."  "She had a soft heart and would not wake up the servent girls and while they slept she would milk the cows. My father-on-law would scold Christina but she'd just smile and would let the girls sleep and milk the cows..."  "How I loved my husband's mother for her kindess and good heart."  "Her  chothes closet was a splendid sight.  She had  52 dresses  made in Germany while visiting Ludwig's great grandfather's second family..... I remember because she had one Sunday dress for each Sunday of the year.....,"  Each dress and it's own own matching shoes of matching cloth or leather,   purses also matched in material,  parsels, gloves....."  "The closet had been built special to accomendate Christine warerobe." "Many of the dresses  had been sewn by popular semtresses in _____ [not known but thought Ludwigsburg], Germany when she and Michael visited family. "The clothes were of the latest European fashions of the time worn by the upper class ladies." "Her mother was Margaret,  who was born in 1808 in Wuertemberg, had was part of the group who believed in the "Second Coming" of Christ...."  It was believed that Christ was to appear back on earth on Mt. Araract in 1817.  "Christine and her children attended the Lutheran Church in Borodino." "She was quite an indepent woman of her time.  She made a deal with her husband that while he was gone each fall when it was time to harvent the grapes, she would be given the profit since she was the one making the decisions and making sure the grapes were properly handled. With her profit she would buy what she liked." "One year she had the local craftsmen make a new bed. The headboard held the carving of one of Michael's coat of arms." "I don't recall the actual coat of arms but I do recall it held  the initials  'WGW' which "What God Wills"...."  "It was with her grape profits that she purchased china dishes, a complete set of twelve, for each of her daughter-in-law before her sons were married.  She had built a special china closet which held on the china dishes."  " I had not collected because we had migrated to the USA and hoped to collect when we returned to Borodino. I always wanted to go home. I loved all my family and Borodino where I grew-up..."  "One night, I dreamt all my china crashed to the floor. When I woke I told your grandfather that his mother had died." "Not long afterwards, we recieved word that she," [Christina], " had died."  "All the old photographs of Christina and the others  were lost on the train we had loaded  or baggage and trunkswhen moving from Wyoming to Montana."  They  had missed  the train because they had lost track of time ....  But it was a small price because those who had gone on the train had died. It had been caught in a snow storm many of the passengers had froze to death.....  "All of them are dead, now... How I cried when we left them...  If we hadn't left, we would have died, too.  The communists killed all the 'Kulacks" because they wanted our land, shops and our even the clothes off the backs of our family....."  Too full of emotion  over these sad memories,  I shut off the recorder and plan to ask more questions during another visit with my grandmother who was already in her late 80s.

Last Postcard from Michael Hein to his son Ludwig Hein living in the USA- ca 1925.

>>"Good morning my beloved brother Ludwig and Christina  this is from from our bereaved father and your children's  grandmother, but your mother and your children's grandmother is not here anymore,  she was here, but  she has gone to the other sister  [line not illegible].... I think it is I, your father,  who will remain here until this January  because I believe I will follow soon.  My whole body is giving evidence...

Psalm 90.10

I [their father who ] will be 80 years old soon.<<

Note:   He would have been 80  1 Feb 1924.  However, he died after his son Daniel who died Nov 1928.  So, we  have him dying about 1929.  This has been confirmed by relatives who lived in Borodino  at that time. The woman that had just died was his second wife,  Rosina, nee Nahr, Hein, Hein d. 25 Feb 1925 Borodino.   His first wife was Elizbeth, nee Hager, whom we believed died 15 My 1917 Borodino.  Elizabeth is the mother of Ludwig Hein --to whom the postcard was sent-- and grandmother of Ludwig's children.

Sharon Mittelstadt,  wrote 26 April 2000:

....My husbands great granparents came from Borodino and settled in McIntosch County, North Dakota.

Their daughter Karoline married Christoph Hein....

The following information is from the Schweigert Family Bible.  Thought you might be interested ....

Karolina Schweigert was born 8 June 1890 in Borodino, S. Russia.  On 11 Feb 1912 by Coldwater, ND, she married Christoph Hein.

Karolina's parents are V. Christian Schweigert born 17 Aug 1861, Borodino,  South Russia and Ruth Schock born 18 June 1862 Borodino, South Russia.

There is a middle name for Ruth but our translater wasn't sure what it was.

....Christian spelled Schweikert with a "g" in American.
