  • Notes 
    • Heyman Heyman and Louis Merz came to West Point, GA when the Atlanta & West Point Rail Road was completed in 1854. The young men began a very modest dry goods business, selecting as their motto, "Dieu Ma Forte"...God is my Strength. The War between the States ended their association, for Louis Merz joined the West Point Guard, in April, 1861, and was killed at Sharpesburg (Antietam) Maryland September 18, 1862. Mr. Heyman and Daniel Merz, brother of Louis, operated a tannery in Bluffton for the Confederacy during he war years. The interesting old house of Heyman and Betty Merz Heyman, at 210 North 14th Street, was built about 1875-77 by Dr. Benjaman Thomas Smith. Henry Harrington was the builder in charge of the job. Heyman Heyman came to West Point in 1854. He and Louis Merz founded the department store that bore their names, Heyman & Merz, which served the area almost a century.

      Heyman Heyman was sometimes referred to as Herman Heyman. [1]
