I'm trying to find Charles Wiedeman/Weidman in the Bellaire area ca. 1860. He was a son of Bernard Wiedeman and Elizabeth Snyder of West Liberty, Ohio Co. VA (WVA), and born about 1818.The 1850 census for Ohio Co. lists him with wife Mary, 26; Sarah, 4; Levy, 3; Mary, 1; and Richard, 5 mos. I'm specifically looking for evidence of a son, William Caspar Weidman, born about 1853.
Charles died prior to 1882; his heirs, listed on an Ohio Co. deed disposing of his father's property, are given as follows: James, Frank, Joseph, Mary Gordon, and Elizabeth Lender (given as "heirs of Charles Weidman, dec'd, of Bellaire, OH").Caspar is listed as a separate heir of Charles' father Bernard, but is much too young to have been a son.
I'm hoping to find an 1860 or 1870 census for Charles' family, or a probate record listing his heirs.
