I am seeking the ancestry of this Headen branch.There is a strong connection with the church in this family.There are preachers and/or missionaries in every generation back to my husband's gg-grandfather, William Harvey Headen.Due to the location and given names of the family of William Headen (d.1807 Jackson Co., GA) and his wife, Jane Beavers, I have speculated that they might be the ancestors that I am seeking.However, I have no proof to connect to them to our branch.I am including some of my info below.If you see any connections or familiar info, please, contact me.
