  • Notes 
    • According to the 1910 census, both of his parents were born in Virginia.

      In the 1910 census, he, his wife Belle, and his son Frank L. are all living in Bethel, Clark County, Ohio.

      According to The History of the Heck Family in America (citation details below), he was first married to a Mary Allen who died 10 Jul 1918, which implies that the marriage ended in divorce.

      He fought on the Union side in the Civil War, in the 135th Ohio Infantry, 153rd Regiment National Guard. According to The History of Clark County, Ohio (Chicago: W. H. Beers, 1881), which provides a full list of the 153rd Regiment that incliudes "Heck, David P.", the regiment was organized at Camp Dennison, Ohio on 12 May 1864, with Col. Israel Stough as its commander. "At Harper's Ferry, Va., and along the line of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and under Gen. Butler at Bermuda Hundred, during guard and picket duty, was the period of service this regiment expended. […] It was mustered out in the latter part of July, 1864, at Camp Chase, Ohio."
