Thanks David. I'm not sure about Randolph Co. but will sure go through the census. I have Waltzed all around that one.The Hedrick setteled at New Franklin Mo. and The Swope family first setteled in Howard Co. then Pettis Co. at Longwood...same time frame early 1840's [ off 65 N. of Sedalia ]Her birth date is supposed to be in Mo. on 12 Jan. 1841....So time frame is good for that. Take care and thanks again...off to check Randolph Co.
