Personal

Relocation

Born in Chicago, IL, Arthur Heineman was born into a family comfortable financially, c. 1880. His father, William, and his mother, Gertrude, resided in the Hyde Park section of Chicago. They had a sitter, Gertrude's sister, Julia Seelman, (born c. 1845 in England-10/02/1880 in Chicago, IL) and employed two servants, Jennie Doyle (born c. 1858 in NY) and Mary Fuchs (born c. 1865 in WI).

Arthur Heineman moved to Pasadena, CA, with his parents and brothers Aldred and Herbert in 1894. The brothers worked together in various combinations, although initially, they worked separately. In 1909, the family lived nearby to another in Pasadena. Ada J. Heineman lived at 285 West Mountain Street in Pasadena with her brother, Arthur and his wife, Irene. Alfred, his father, Theodore, and someone named Charlotte Holt Heineman lived at 849 Lincoln Avenue. Walter, a broker, lived near Ada and Arthur at 269 West Mountain. (See Thurston's Pasadena, California, City Directory, 1909, p. 164.)

From at least 1910 until 1911, Heineman lived with his wife, Irene, and two daughters at 1737 Mission Street in South Pasadena, CA. (See Pasadena, California, City Directory, 1911, p. 367.) He and Irene resided in a rented home at 1838 North Kenmore Street in Los Angeles, CA, in 09/1918. (See Ancestry.com, Source Citation Registration State: California; Registration County: Los Angeles; Roll: 1530902; Draft Board: 14, accessed 04/17/2017.) According to the 1920 US Census, the family had a servant living with them, Elsie Carston, (born c. 1896 in CA). (See Ancestry.com, Source Citation Year: 1920; Census Place: Los Angeles Assembly District 63, Los Angeles, California; Roll: T625_106; Page: 4A; Enumeration District: 154; Image: 381, accessed 04/17/2017.)

Apparently, Arthur Heineman had prospered during the 1920s, as he and his family lived at 254 Spalding Drive in Beverly Hills, CA, in 1931. (See Beverly Hills, California, City Directory, 1931, p. 116.) The Heinemans did not live in Beverly Hills for long after 1931, as the Depression was very hard on the incomes of archtiects. By 1937, they lived at 458 South Highland Avenue in Los Angeles. At this time, Irene had taken a job as Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction, State Department of Education. (See Los Angeles A-L, California, City Directory, 1937, p. 896.) She continued in this job until at least 1942. (See Los Angeles, California, City Directory, 1942, p. 1083.)

In 04/1942, they lived at 1844 San Jacinto Street in Los Angeles. (See Ancestry.com, Source Citation The National Archives at St. Louis; St. Louis, Missouri; Draft Registration Cards for Fourth Registration for California, 04/27/1942 - 04/27/1942; NAI Number: 603155; Record Group Title: Records of the Selective Service System; Record Group Number: 147, accessed 04/17/2017.)

They had moved to Glendale, CA, by 1948, where they lived at 1425 Dartmouth Drive. (See Glendale, California, City Directory, 1948, p. 287.) They continued to live here in 1960. (See Glendale, California, City Directory, 1960, p. 229.)

Arthur Heineman died in Los Angeles County, CA, at the age of 93.

The family moved to IL by 1873, at the latest, where Arthur's brother, Herbert, was born. Other siblings of Arthur's were a sister, Ada Jullia (born 1874 in Chicago, IL-d. 1964 in Los Angeles, CA), and Alfred (born 06/21/1882 in Chicago, IL.)
