Charles, Thank you so much! That is a lot of information. It is the first documentation I have of Angeline Vandever. Also, it is new to me that James Heddens was a retail merchant.
It seems that, but for his children, he was the only Heddens around. Is that how it looks to you? Supposedly, he came from Pennsylvania, but I have never been able to determine from where, parents, siblings, etc. If he was the loner he seems to have been, I fear I never shall.
Thank you again so very much. This is wonderful information and very kind of you. Anna
