Heinrich Altstadt and his wife, Catherine, lived and died in Paderborn, Westphalia, Germany.

Heinrich and Catherine's son, Heinrich Altstadt, immigrated to America in the 1850s and settled in Posey County, Indiana. In 1854, he married Margaret Rickert and this union produced five offspring. After her death he married Mary Ann Theuerkauf in 1864. Mary Ann died in 1873 and he married her sister, Barbara Theuerkauf. Barbara bore Heinrich one son, Nicholas Altstadt. (Nicholas, his wife Elizabeth, and children, Catherine and Anna are pictured at left). When Barbara died he married, for the last time, to Barbara Hermann. Heinrich Altstadt died in 1880.

The Altstadt's were members of the Catholic Church. Benjamin William Alstadt (Altstadt) moved to Kentucky where he became a protestant and changed the spelling of his last name to Alstadt. His family later moved to Illinois, before settling down in Arkansas.

Communications between the current lines of Altstadt and Alstadt families descended from Heinrich Altstadt has healed this religious rift
