Becky, I've only recently started this journey, so I'm responding to a post that is fairly old. I've only been able to go back as far as my great-great grandfather, Franklin Hedgepath. I have it that he lived in Polk County, GA. So, I think he must be the son of your William Hedgepath. I also have it (verbally) that Franklin's wife was a Mysina, so that may help clear that up somewhat. I'm very interested to know any other information you have in that particular line.Anything that can be added would be greatly appreciated.
