The 1910, 1920, and 1930 Federal Census records the William Heberlig family living along the York/Petersburg Roads outside of Mechanicburg, Pa.
The 1910 census has a Samuel B. (age 36) and May (age 29) Heberlig living next to his brother William and family. The 1910 census also shows another Samuel B. Heberlig of Cumberland Co. He is age 67 (b 1843) and has a wife, Martha (b 1857) and children Florence A. (b 1870) and Sarah B. (b 1876). This Samuel is in the 1880 Cumberland Co. census at age 37 with wife Martha, age 34, and children Anna (age 10), Bertie (age 8), Sarah (age 4). This could well be William's father. If it is, it should be noted that this Samuel can be found in the 1870 Cumberland Co. census, Hopewell Township, living with his father, Samuel (b 1806), and mother, Hannah (b 1807). This Samuel and family are in the 1850 and 1860 Federal Census in Hopewell Township. The 1840 census records him as Samuel Heverling. The 1830 census records him as Samuel Heberling of West Pennsboro, Cumberland Co.

These records indicate Sam and Susan have another child Martin Luther Heberlig born Feb 9, 1881 but I believe this is a transcription error and actually referenced William L. Heberlig.
