Seeking anyone who is researching the BIDELMAN/BIDLEMAN family. My ancestor Peter Simon first appears about 1780 and lived in Manheim. Looking especially for anyone descended from his sons Henry, Robert, Adam. I have much information on the family after they moved west to Orleans Co., and then to Michigan. Will gladly share.

BIDLEMAN : I am tracing Adam Bidleman, whose father was also Adam. I believe he was born in Herkimer County in about 1828. His grandfather was Peter Simon Bidleman. The name is often misspelled BIDDLEMAN ( a common problem even today). I believe the family came from Germany in the early 1600s. Would like to exchange info with anyone sharing this last name in their family. Karen Bidleman, 2022 Benson Ave. Klamath Falls OR, 97601
