I believe there may be a family connection. The information I have on the Biddles is very limited and basically comes from a notation on the back of an old photograph of Charles Biddle that my grandfather had. Charles Biddle's mother (according to this) was Ann Watson Biddle, but his father's name is unknown. Ann Watson was born on July 18, 1811. I also have a photo of William Biddle, born 1845, who I believe was Charles' brother, although I'm not sure. I don't have any birth date for Charles. It seems unlikely that there would be more than one Charles Biddle, druggist or physician, on Market Street in the same time period, so I think there's a good chance it's the same person. I have information on the Watsons, but not the Biddles. My line descends from Ann Watson Biddle's brother. You can email me directly if you like. My email address is the same as listed in
