Both Jesse or "Jepe" & Lewis are listed in John's will, but I can find no baptismal record for them.  Lewis is specified as "My son", but Jepe is not.  
"My son Lewis Wideman shall have his full share and one Sorrel mare and Bay yearling colt, three yearling colt, or Bay Stud Horse and the said Lewis shall be deducted out of his share for said Horses, fifteen dollars and receive no money from me as Guardian, Jepe (Jesse) Wideman shall have his full share and the yearling Sorrel Colt for money received as guardian for him,"

Both J.H. Battle's "History of Columbia & Montour Co., PA," Chicago: A. Warner & Co., 1915, p. 184 and J.H. Battle's "Columbia & Montour Co., PA," Chicago: J.H. Beers Co., 1915, Vol. III, p. 935 state that Catherine (Weidman) Hagerman's parents were John & Hannah Weidman of Northampton Co. who died 1840 and 1870 respectively.
