Heidel Family Genealogy Forum
Looking for information about the parents/ancestors of Philip T. Heidle. He was born 1815 in SC (probably Lexington Co.). Philip enlisted for service in the Creek War in 1836 and was discharged at Columbus, GA that year. He married Mary Britt March 23, 1845 in Monroe Co. GA and they had nine children that I know of. Philip enlisted for service with the CSA during the Civil War in March 1862 in the Company B 45th Georgia Regiment and was killed on Aug. 29, 1862 at the Battle of Second Manassas in Virginia. His widow, Mary Britt-Heidle received a pension 1891-1899 for his service.
Philip T. Heidle/Hidle is listed in the 1840-50-60 censuses of Monroe Co. GA. His widow Mary is listed in Pike Co. GA in 1870-80, and in 1891 she received Philip's pension in Upson Co. GA.
There are very few other Heidle's in any records. A John Hidle (b. 1770's-d. 1840's) in Monroe Co. GA may be his father. Also enlisting for the Civil War from Monroe Co. GA at the same time as Philip were; Dionicious Heidle and Sanford Heidle, perhaps his brothers.
Any information about the ancestors of these Heidles appreciated.
