HORACE B. BEIDEMAN was born in Stockton Township NJ in 1878 to Thomas and Josephine Beideman. Thomas Beideman was a farmer, but he had retired from farming at the age of 49. Stockton Township, which then consisted of what is commonly known as East Camden and Cramer Hill, merged with Camden in 1899. 

On February 19, 1903 Horace Beideman married his wife Beatrice at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Camden.  

At the time of the 1920 Census Horace Beideman owned a home at 3404 River Road in Camden's Cramer Hill neighborhood, where he lived with his wife Beatrice, and daughter, also named Beatrice. His mother, Josephine Beideman, lived next door, at 3520 River Road. He was then an officer in a shipyard. By 1928 Horace B. Beideman was working as the City Transportation Inspector for Camden. The Beideman family was still living at 3404 River Road at the time of the 1930 Census. Horace Beideman also involved himself in real estate. 

Horace Beideman had passed away by the time the 1947 Camden City Directory was compiled. His widow Beatrice was operating an insurance agency out of the home at that time.
