Johann Heinrich Beijen (4.1) (usually called Heinrich), a son of Mathias Beijen who was mentioned at the end of the previous page, was born in 1842 in Breyell. In 1870 he married Victoria Hormes, who was born in Breyell as well. According to the register of marriages he was a farm-hand. After their wedding Heinrich and Victoria lived in the neighbouring towns of Leuth and Kaldenkirchen.
In 1887 Heinrich and Victoria moved to the Netherlands: they settled in Venlo, just at the Dutch side of the border. In the inhabitants' register Heinrich was listed as a workman en later as a fruit merchant.
In 1903 Heinrich and Victoria moved back to Leuth in Germany. Victoria passed away there in 1910. Heinrich was still alive by then; it is not yet known when he died.
