Hedge(s) Family DNA !!Update!!
Posted by: Jesi (ID *****4337) Date: January 17, 2007 at 14:24:27

The results are back.
Family Tree DNA would not start a "Hedges" group.
Hedges are already listed under "Edge" group.
We joined the HODGES group.

So far, we don't match any HEDGE(S)/HODGE(S) or EDGE's!
Unfortunately, there are very few Hedge(s) DNA out there.
Please encourage Hedge(s) family members to participate.

The names George, William, Charles, Thomas, David, Frank, Elizabeth, Susan, and Martha are used many times over in the family.

Our George HEDGES is said to have raised race horses, his son William "Buck" HEDGE(dropped the s) was a flat boatman and a logger.
William's obit described him as having a full- blooded Cherokee Indian grandfather, (suspect this is Susan's father, James Hood), and "looking like the tribe, having hair which is long, straight and black."
We have not been able to determine George's death, will/probate, or burial.

The family leaving from Kentucky, land in the Gallatin/Edwards/White/Wayne Co. area and later Mt Carmel, Wabash Co IL. These counties are side by side.

The family is:
George Hedges born ? VA, was in TN/KY (married Susan Hood), then onto Gallatin Co. IL died somewhere around 1840? -
- William "Buck" Hedge b c1819 Lexington, KY
d Jul 1889 Edwards Co. IL (married Loraine Easters)
-- Edward b Jan 1858 Edwards Co. IL
d 10 Sep 1903 Wayne Co. IL (murdered,
by James Owen) married Sarah E. McWorthy
--- Arthur James b 16 Oct 1890 Edwards Co IL
d Mar 1967 Terre Haute, IN
married Allie Mae Cox, 2nd Ada Iva Adams

A paid researcher, in Edwards Co, IL determined our George Hedges to be born May 25, 1797 in KY, son of John Hedges. The age does not fit.

A "Hedges" who descends from the John Hedges family in KY, has submitted DNA, ours does not match.
