Calvin Heyman taught school until 1897. He married Flora Heyman (page 448) and then engaged in farming and livestock breeding for the remainder of his life. He helped publish the “red book”, 1678-1931, distributed at the First Homecoming and Joint Reunion of the descendants of Johann Wilhelm Heymann (John George Heymann, John William Heymann, and William Conrad Heymann), on August 23, 1931. Ethel Heyman, their daughter (page 449) helped her father publish Supplement I, 1931-1940, and Supplement II, 1940-1947 and the 1973 Heymann Genealogy and History, 1630-1973.

"Don’t you wonder what caught the eye of the little girl in the bottom row— why she couldn’t stand still for the photographer? "
