Notes: Relating to George, second son of Carl Johann Henrich (Charles) Hedderich, it is known that he arrived in Philadelphia with along with his father and brother Casper and presumably others in their families, on September 27, 1746 aboard the ship "Ann Galley", captained by William Wilson. Unlike his father and brother, George appears to have been absent the day they took their required Oath of Alliegence. Casper and Carl's mark appears near their names on the register, but no mark appears next to George's name. Nothing else is know about George after 1757. This is excerpt from the article. I am related through the son Casper Hedrick who had a son Charles who made his ho Pendleton county Va. now WVA.
