Thanks so much for sending the middle name of Robert Hodges #84179286 but foremost for bringing this memorial to my attention so I could link him to his parents.

I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

RE: Julius Frederick II Heileman
Lieutenant Colonel Julius Heileman was indeed born in Massachusetts, altough I do not know when. I do know that he died at Fort Drane, Florida on 27/06/1836, but have no idea of his final resting place.

J. Frederick Heileman #77433374
Could this man possibly be the son of Bvt. Lieutenant Colonel Julius Frederick Heileman? Colonel Heileman was serving at Fort Moultrie, South Carolina at the time of his birth.
