Did you intend to post to the State of Delaware forum? If so, which family members do you believe were in the state? Edwin Heidel was born in Illinois and appears in the 1920 Census along with other data from that location. However, there doesn't appear to be a Heidel migration to Delaware.

Name: Edwin Heidel
Home in 1920: Breese, Clinton, Illinois
Age: 12
Estimated birth year: abt 1908
Birthplace: Illinois
Relation to Head of House: Son
Father's Name: Henry Heidel
Father's Birth Place: Illinois
Mother's Name: Mary Heidel
Mother's Birth Place: Illinois
Marital Status: Single
Race: White
Sex: Male
Able to read: Yes
Able to Write: Yes
Household Members: Name Age
Henry Heidel 36
Mary Heidel 34
John Heidel 13
Edwin Heidel 12

Henry was a coal miner and their neighbors were Timmermans but not searchable because it was transcribed as Funeman -I have seen the original document and submiited Timmerman as an alternate surname:

Name: Henry Funeman
[Henry Tumeman]
[Henry Tumeman??]
Home in 1920: Breese, Clinton, Illinois
Age: 32
Estimated birth year: abt 1888
Birthplace: Illinois

Mother's Name: Mary Funeman
Mother's Birth Place: Illinois
Marital Status: Single

Able to Write: Yes

Household Members: Name Age
Mary Funeman 57
Henry Funeman 32
Lawrence Funeman 30
William Funeman 28
Theodora Funeman 23
Conrad Funeman 17

The original document as I read it:

Mary Timmerman Age 57, widow, b. IL, F. German, Mother IL
Henry (son) Age 32, Single, b. IL
Lawrence (son) 30, Single, b. IL
William (son) 28, Single, b.IL

Conrad (son), 17, Single, b. IL


1930 Census:

Birthplace: Illinois
Relation to Head of House: Head
Spouse's name: Mary Heidel

Edward Heidel 22

Henry Casper Heidel registered for the draft in 1918. His wife wife was Mary, his occupation was miner and listed his birth date as 2 May 1883.
