The birth index entry1686 for son Carl lists Deforest's birthplace as "Chening Co., NY." It is assumed that is a mistranscription of "Chemung Co., NY," as Deforest was in Catlin, Chemung Co., NY, in 1870.

That Ted Bideler is Deforest Bideler, son of Deforest and Luella Bideler is indicated by his World War II draft registration170 card, in which Ted Bideler lists Mrs Mary Luella Colvin as his mother; and, circumstantially, due to his last name; similarity in birth dates recorded for both; Ted Bideler's appearance in the 1940 census5142 for Short Mountain, AR, residing in the house next to Luella Colvin and her second husband, Sam S Colvin; and his general presence in the Paris, Logan Co., Arkansas, area, where many of his relatives lived.

- Two years later, Ted Bideler, age 37, of Paris, AR, married 5177 May 30, 1942, in Logan Co., AR, Miss Mae Thorpe, age 37, of Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is likely the Ted Bideler that granted a divorce5180 from Mae Bideler, about October, 1945, in Neosho, Missouri.
