Heuning, Roelof (d. 1801)
Roelof Heuning, born at Westzaan, died 25 January 1801 at Groningen, was a Dutch Mennonite preacher who served the congregations of Edam 1760-1771 and Groningen (Old Flemish) 1771-1804. He was elder and moderator (Commissaris) of the Groningen Old Flemish Conference from 1775 until his death. In this function he corresponded with some congregations in Prussia, like Kleinsee, which had been struck in 1781 by a severe crop failure and was given financial support by the Groningen Old Flemish Sociëteit. Roelof Heuning or Honig (Honigh) may have been a relative of the Honig family found in the Dutch Zaan district.
