HI-=-I'm looking for him too, or his descendants! My wife's gr-gr uncle, a Union oficer, was wounded on Solomon Heater's farm in 1864 at Battle of Cedar Creek (we have an 1872 letter from the ancestor that descibes it, and by deduction we are sure it was on the Heater farm, that he was hit after sheltering himself behind Heater's barn)and I'm searchign for anyone that has family info (oral or written) about an encoutner between the two of them that is descibed in the letter. I know that in 1879 the Heater's got federal restitution for troop damage to the farm, and that in 1880 cnesus his widow Caroline was living with son Charles W in Opequon, near Winchester VA. In 1883, with the federal money in hand, they built the humongous Queen Ann brick house and Victorian barn that still exist across the road from there original location, where our ancestor was wounded. It's a fascinating story, and I want to learn more about the Heaters, adn to find out when the original barn was destoryed. Ed Daniel ROckville MD
