  10.   ==The Hedger Genealogy of Pat Smith==

    The Hedger Genealogy of Pat Smith's research notes: Hedger Binder C-2,46,110 It is important that this ELIAKIM is not confused with his father's brother ELIAKIM= the son of the Pioneer Thomas HEDGER of ENG. C-110 WP-Aft Susannah's death, Eliakim & his children moved to Woodbridge,NJ C-110 WP-The children of Eliakim have been hardest to trace, with the exception of Joseph, who went to Virginia and of whom there is ample legacy. The line of John Hedger, youngest son of Eliakim by his second wife, Margaret Lippencott, has been the most difficult. This John is evidently the same one who died intestate in New Jersey in 1815, so there is reason to believe that his children were all born there. His son, John, however, seems to have gone to Virginia to visit his cousins, Thomas & Stephen Hedger, and from there went to that part of Kentucky which was directly across the river from Clermont Co.,Ohio. This John married Rebecca Corlies & the history of the Corlies family says she went to Ohio with her husband. The account must have been written after their arrival in Ohio, for every indication is that John & Rebecca settled in what was later Campbell Co.,KY & their family migrated into Ohio after that. In that portion of the book dealing with John & Rebecca (Corlies) Hedger, my reasons for believing this will be stated.=Pat Smith=JB

    !Source: Hedger Binder A-24 Removed to Woodbridge,NJ in 1728 and later made his home in Somerset Co., at a place called Stony Brook, and there Eliakim married Margaret Lippenccott, who reared the youngest of his children.
