I have a Weidig family Bible dated 1854. It belonged to Phillip Weidig from Illinois. He married Sarah M. Chittenden in 1870, he died in 1890 and is buried in Marion National cemetary. He was a civil war veteran. Sarah and Phillip had 5 children.Sarah died in 1887. 3 of the children died young, 2 of the other children were raised in an orphanage. I have a little more information I would be glad to share with other family.
