Kathy, I have been searching for Heider ancestors in Ohio. My grandfather was Edwin G. Heider from Ironton, Missouri. His father was thought to be Edwin G. Heider also, and he was from Ohio.I found an Edward Heider from Ohio, so continued searching for more information. I found your site mentioning Edward Heider as a son of Bernhard, and thought you might like to have the other sites I have found mentioning Edward Heider. One is Diary of Clarence C. Childs, Fremont, Ohio, Sixteenth Ohio National Guard Spanish American War, April 26, 1898 to February 6, 1899 http://www.rbhayes.org/hayes/content/files/Hayes_Historical_Journal/clarencecchildswardiary1.htmhttp://www.rbhayes.org/hayes/content/files/Hayes_Historical_Journal/clarencecchildswardiary1.htm And the other is The Spanish American War Centennial Website http://www.spanamwar.com/6thohioroster.htmhttp://www.spanamwar.com/6thohioroster.htm Good luck with your search.
