Notes
a. Note:   MHR note: William R. Hedges had a big orchard and back of it one could see across the Licking River to the Fox place, tall trees and magnolias. Great grandfather was across the river and we went over in a canoe dug out of a big log. MHR note: The following incident in the early life of William Ribelin Hedges was told by George Edward Hedges, son of James Alva Hedges and his wife Philora (Allen). When "Willie Riblan" was about 10 yaers old, he shot and wounded a bear on or near the home place in Kentucky but did not kill it. He ran to the house in excitement to get the dogs. Upon hearing what was afoot, his father Levi Hedges said he knew where the bear would go and knew a short cut to the place. He went with Willie Riblan" with his own gun and intercepted the bear. He shot it himself and Willie was outraged as it had been his bear and he had not been allowed to polish it off.
b. Note:   d for her mother who died when Betty was about 25 years old. Malinda Hedges needed help, so Betty made her home with them. She got board and room and one third of the wool. Betty was so shy she put on her sunbonnet before coming downstairs and few ever saw her face. Lonely widowers found her not only unresponsive, but unwilling to talk to them. When 81 and nearly blind, she fell downstairs and died shortly thereafter. She helped rear the second generation and �Uncle Will� said she'd been a second mother.
Note:   MHR note: Ida Cronkhite said (in pink letter of 28 December 1949) she thought that �Aunt Betty� Hopper (Eliz. B.1820) who was found with the William Ribelin Hedges family in the 1870 census, was a distant cousin through the Armstrongs. She care
