Welcome to the website for descendants of John Heinrich and Augustina Olm and related families. John and Augustina moved to the US from Berlin and Luxembourg respectively in their childhood and married in New York in 1906. John was a Baptist Minister and following the wedding they moved to Delmont South Dakota to serve the Baptist congregation there.
In 1908, the Heinrich family responded to a call to serve the congregations of Blenheim and Tent Hill arriving in Brisbane, Australia on December 1,1908. Their travels took them from South Dakota to Vancouver where they embarked on the Aorangi which carried them to Brisbane. John and Augustina served the Blenheim and Tent Hill Baptist communities for 22 years and retired in 1931 to their property at Coominya. In 1933 John took up another pastoral assignment in Kalbar. In 1935 his health declined and he passed away May 5 1936 at the age of 60. Augustina continued to live at the farm until her death on February 16 1943. They are buried at Laidley Cemetery.
