    Biography
    • From Floyd's History of Northumberland County 1911: WILLIAM A. HEINEN, brother of Henry J., was born Oct. 16, 1850, at Milton, and there received his early education in the public schools. Later he took a course at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pa. In his youth Mr. Heinen followed farming, but in 1879, upon the retirement of his father, he became a member of the mercantile firm of Heinen, Schreyer & Co., with which he continued until 1880, after which he was engaged for some years in superintending his farm. In June, 1891, he became vice president and paymaster of the Milton Manufacturing Company, manufacturers of nuts and washers, and he is still serving in that capacity. He is associated with a number of other local enterprises of note, having served as director of the Milton Gas Company, the Milton Trust and Safe Deposit Company (of which became vice president), the Milton Iron Company, the Milton Driving Park and Fair Association, the Milton Water Company and the Milton Bridge Company, and he is secretary of the Milton Creamery Company. His substantial position makes his connection with any venture an assurance of its legitimate business purpose and high character.

      On Oct. 8, 1889, Mr. Heinen married Mary C. Shimer, daughter of Samuel J. and Catherine A. (Stout) Shimer, of Milton. They have five children, William S., Henry S., George S., Levis S., and Catherine S., all of whom are still at home. Mr. Heinen and his family are members of the Presbyterian Church.
