Notes on the Henry Biddle Family- by Lulu (Biddle) Phillips and Mary Ellen (Phillips) Bruning

Henry Biddle (1841-1920) in a Historical Context- My Great Grandfather - His daughter Mattie (Biddle) Picton was married to My Grandfather Owen Picton.

This is how my family is connected to the different Biddle families. My ancestor, Henry Biddle (my Great Grandfather born in Pennsylvania) came from Sacramento, California where he had a mill that was destroyed by flooding and settled on a farm in about 1874 near a North South road (Praire Rd) Irving Township, Brown County, Kansas running toward Rulo, Nebraska (just a few miles from the Missouri River). My Grandmother Martha (Mattie) Picton is a daughter of this Henry Biddle. This farm (which is still owned by a Henry Biddle descendant) already had his brother (Thomas Biddle Family) living across the road South from him and his sister and husband (Sarah and Matthew Zahniser) living across the road East from him. His brother the Thomas Biddle Family first moved from Mercer County, Pennsylvania in 1863 to Illinois, then in about 1865 to Tama County Iowa, then in 1868 Iowa to Brown County, Kansas, then in 1881 to Axtel, Kansas. Jonathan Biddle was the Grandfather of Henry Biddle, Sarah (Biddle) Zahniser and Thomas Biddle. Jonathan Biddle (there Grandfather) had his father (Arney Biddle [1735-1777] die on (911) September 11, 1777 at the Battle of Brandywine in Pennsylvania plus Jonathan Biddle had as his second cousins, three brothers named Nicholas Biddle, Major Thomas Biddle and Major John Biddle. Arney Biddle had as his father Joseph Biddle and Grandfather William Biddle II (1669-1743). The exploration of the nearby Missouri River about 50 to 60 years before Henry Biddle and his siblings arriving, had roles played by Nicholas Biddle, Major Thomas Biddle and Major John Biddle. One would think Henry Biddle and his siblings would be aware of the efforts these three distant cousins had made and it would have influenced them. My Biddle branch is the poorer Biddle branch but many still like to travel. The three second cousin Biddle brothers (Nicholas Biddle, Major Thomas Biddle and Major John Biddle) are connected to exploration of the Missouri River.
