Julius Hinz was born on May 14, 1852 in Pomerania.  Julius and his brother August immigrated to the United States together.  They left Hamburg on November 26, 1882 and sailed directly to New York aboard the SS Bohemia under the command of Captain Pezoldt.  The SS Bohemia was constructed in 1881 at the A.& J. Inglis Shipyard in Glasgow with a straight stem, one funnel, and two masts (rigged for sail).  She was an iron construction, with a single screw and a service speed of 12 knots.  There was a accommodation for 100-1st and 1,200-3rd class passengers.  The Bohemia docked in the Port of New York on December 15, 1882.
 
Traveling with Julius was his wife, Adeline Herritz, along with their son Berthold, two daughters Emma and Martha, his mother Charlotte Hinz, Adeline's parents, August Hinz and his family.  The passenger manifest for the S. S. Bohemia, spells Julius' last name with the a 't' while his brother August retained the 'Hinz' spelling.  Julius and Adeline settled on a farm in Freedom, Wisconsin and established a home in Sauk County. On October 11, 1884, Julius applied for U.S. citizenship.  In 1912 they purchased a home in Ableman (now called Rock Springs) and lived there until Adeline died in 1929.  Julius spent time with the families of his children until he died on September 24, 1932.  Funeral services were held on Tuesday, September 27, 1932 at 2:00 at the Lutheran Church in Ableman.  The Reverend R. Lehman conducted the service.  Julius and Adelina Heritz Hinz are buried together in St. John's Lutheran Cemetery just north of Rock Springs, Sauk County, Wisconsin.  August and his second wife, Augusta Trachsler Hintz, are buried in the same cemetery.[1]

Berthold Charles Hinz was born in Germany on January 25, 1877.  He married Sarah Williams on June 27, 1902 in Wisconsin.  The 1905 Sauk County Directory lists Bert and Sarah as grocers with a "Hintz & Williams" grocery store located at 5th and Elizabeth Streets in Baraboo.  Their daughter Helen and son Russell were both born in Wisconsin in 1906 and 1908 respectively.  By 1913 Bert and his family were living in Creston, Union County, Iowa where he was working in construction.  A local newspaper article places him at the construction site of the town's new Presbyterian Church.  The 1920 U.S. Census shows them still living in Creston.
 
In 1930, Bert, Sarah, and Russell were living in Miami, Florida without daughter Helen, who had married Frederick Waterman Ide in Creston in 1927.  Also living with the family was Nell Grigsby, the daughter of a family friend from Kansas.  On December 6, 1933 Bert gave Nell away in her wedding.  The 1935 Florida state census shows the family in Florida and son Russell as having completed college.  An article on page eleven of the Miami Daily News on November of 1936 talks about the opening of a new Miami Beach Sears, Roebuck & Co. that was constructed by the Hintz Construction Co.  The family was still together in Florida in 1945.
 
Bert and Sarah returned to Iowa around 1953 for a summer visit.  Bert's grandson, Robert Ide, remembers hitchhiking to Florida to help them drive to Iowa.  Bert moved back to Creston in January of 1963, three months after Russell's death.  Bert was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Creston, the Crest City Lodge No. 522, A.F.&A.M., and the Creston Kiwanis Club.  He spent his last few years living near his daughter and son-in-law in Creston.  Bert died on December 1, 1965 [21] in Creston and his remains were cremated following a memorial service.[3]
