Since I have never written about me I hope this will come out looking ok. Not everything will be included of course!
My name is Timothy John Bidleman. I was born (I think I was anyway)
at Methodist Hospital, in Peoria, Peoria County, Illinois. I always thought my original birth certificate said St Francis and since I can not find it I will rely on the copy I had to pay to get.
Anyway, I was born in 1964 to Theodore Joseph Bidleman and Judith
Ann Eden. Skipping way ahead, I can not tell you much about my father since
he has not had much to do with us while growing up. You see, my parents
split up when I was still very young. According to what I am told, my father
had an accident in the late 60's. He fell head first at Pabst Brewery
and did major damage. I am told he has a metal plate in his head.. Since
that accident he had made a major change in his personality, according to
mother, which led to their split. At least he always paid the child support.
For a short time we were all in foster homes. We, meaning
my brothers and sisters. Though I have lost all contact with my foster parents
over the many years, they are alway part of me. I know their last name was
Heidewald and I do believe the fathers name was Charles. They reside
in Peoria, Illinois. I also remember a Paul Heidewald I do believe was their
son. Like I said, it has been a long time. After a very short time us boys
were removed from foster care from our father. Sometime after that we were
back with our mother.
My mother was married to a James King. When we kids were
finally all together I personally saw everyone as strangers. I did not know
anyone. I was a scared little boy that was taken from really the only parents
I really new at the time. That did not last very long. I accepted that this
was where I was suppose to be no matter how strange I thought my sister Maura
Skipping most of my growing up. I am happily married to the
most patient and wonderful woman I have ever met. Anyone would have to be
patient to put up with tha many hours I spend at libraries and cemeteries
researching my family tree. We met while I was working for Walt Disney World
in Florida. I was a sweeper and she was there on a college program taking
tickets and selling tickets. I worked at the transportation hub. My Cupid
who went by the name of Mr. Morton, who was also on the ticket line helped
encourage me to overcome my fear of aproaching her. We became at work friends
only. That changed only after she left to go back home to Memphis, TN and
we kept in touch as long distant friends through the Post Office. Then she
came back. After a courting period on my part, or a stalking period depending
on whom you ask, we were eventually married at the Methodist Church on Highland
in Memphis Tennessee. Shortly after marriage we moved to Memphis. About 8
years later we had a child and her name is Sarah. She is five now and the
spoiled center of our universe.
Shortly before our daughter turned 5 we moved to Auburn,
Illinois to be closer to her grandmother Evelyn. Sarah is in kindergarten
and grandmother is in a nursing home.
I work for the best inventory audit company I
have ever heard of. LBS, Incorporated
. They are by far the best in any companies auditing and inventory needs.

My wife is a school teacher. Before we moved to
Illinois she had a permanent teaching job in Memphis. Now she is searching
and working on a substute basis until someone hires her full time.
My web site is not of my own research. Not everything
is proven and not everything is conjecture. The family tree information put
forth is to help guide you to the truth about your ancestor and is also here
in hopes of identifying the mistakes I may have in my information.
