I am a newbie Hedgpeth researcher who is going to be in the Fairmont, NC area next month (October 14-16). I would like to visit some Hedgpeth cemeteries during my visit, if possible.
According to ePodunk.com, there are three Hedgpeth cemeteries in the rough vicinity of Proctorville. One of these, the Joseph H. Hedgpeth cemetery off of Hwy #130, has been documented both online and in "Vanishing Ancestors, Volume 3." One of the other Hedgpeth cemeteries looks like it's a little ways off of route 2234 (Oakton Church Road) just south of 2230 (Atkinson Road). The other Hedgpeth cemetery looks like it is off of route 2234 northwest of the junction of 2232 (Proctorville Church Road). I believe one of these cemeteries may also be known as the John T. Hedgpeth cemetery.
Has anyone been to any of these Hedgpeth cemeteries or is familiar enough with the area to give more precise instructions to get to them, and possibly also give me an idea about the condition of the cemeteries? I'd hate to rely solely on the GPS especially if we have to go through farmland for any distance, which looks like it may be true for the last two Hedgpeth cemeteries.
I would also be interested in hearing from other Robeson County Hedgpeth families. I am hooked into the Hedgpeths through my great-grandmother, Bertie Hedgpeth, who married a Pittman. Bertie's parents were Joseph Wynn Hedgpeth and Emma Joan Small. Joseph Wynn's parents were Stephen Hedgpeth and Mary Britt. Stephen's parents were William Hedgpeth and Absaley Loe. I am trying to put together a more comprehensive family tree of Hedgpeths as it is my understanding that all Hedgpeths in Robeson County are related.
