I am still trying to document the parents of William Harvey Hedden/Headen (1855 GA - 1919 VA). The first census on which I have been able to locate him is 1880 in TN. I don't have the identity of his parents and only know of one sister, Martha "Mattie". I have found her on the 1870 census, but not him. She is living with William Harvey's wife in TN on the 1880 census. Some researchers state that Delilah Hedden was his mother, but this is a theory for which I have found no hard evidence or documentation. Descendants of Martha & descendants of William Harvey who had had no contact with one another in several generations state that it is family tradition that the father of Martha and William Harvey was named George. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
