During his residence in Waukegan he served as assistant state's attorney under his brother; the late Christian T. Heydecker, and later was appointed master in chancery by Circuit Judge Charles Whitney.
Last of Four Brothers
Edward Heydecker was the last of four brothers, the three who preceded him in death were: Christian T., Waukegan; Charles, Waukegan; and Adolph, Wadsworth. The family home was in Newport township, where the deceased was born in 1855.
