Three Biddle Brothers - Nicholas Biddle, Major Thomas Biddle and Major John Biddle - This deals with how these three brothers are connected to the history along the Missouri River around Ft. Calhourn, Nebraska near where I live. These Three Biddle Brothers are second cousins to Jonathan Biddle. Jonathan Biddle was the Grandfather of my ancestor Henry Biddle

Arney Biddle (abt 1735-1777) information [Grandson of Lydia (Wardell) Biddle]:
The History of Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, 1770-1877 by S.W. and P.A. Durant- Book states that: Arney Biddle died fighting in the Revolutionary War in the Battle of Brandywine in 9/11/1777, according to his families testimony.

William Biddle 1633-1711 male Y-DNA Haplogroup research has a Biddle (#131067) (Pvt9, Pvt8, Stratford Bradish7, William Shepard6, John5, Charles4, William3, William2, William1 BIDDLE 1633-1711 — of London, England, and Burlington Co., NJ) who is a William Biddle descendant that has taken the Y-DNA tests.  His Y-DNA Haplogroup is known as I2-L39 and I2a2b.  This would most likely mean that our William Biddle's I and II would have Y-DNA Haplogroup being I2-L39.  This would have to be verified by having another Biddle male descendant from a different line from William Biddle II taking the Y-DNA test to make sure they are equal. There is another Biddle listed who descends from a John Beedle (#N53200) born 1756 in England who has the same Haplogroup line (believed to be I2-L39) on other websites but he has not shown here to have tested as yet to the same depth as Biddle (#131067).  Y-DNA haplogroup I2-L39 is not the final end of the line for this Haplogroup and requires additional testing to go down additional levels of the Y-DNA tree. There are other Biddle's who do not match and so are not related.  I have no connection with this Y-DNA website but the Biddle Y-DNA surname website is at: Biddle Y-DNA Surname Project Website and shows both the Haplogroup and lists all the tested STR values.
