Elizabeth McVey was the second wife of Moses Hedrick, his first wife, Isabel Newton, having died after bearing him three children. They lived in a log cabin on what was known in recent times as the James Hanger farm, across Low Gap Road from the Hanger Cemetery. Isabel and two children of Elizabeth's are buried in the Hedrick Family Burial Ground (Fort Spring) which is on the farm. Elizabeth lived on the adjoining McVey farm, so Moses didn't have to go far for wife #2. Some sources give her parents as Samuel Lewis McVey and Mary Jane "Jenny" Paxton, but the Moses Hedrick book states that her parents were Samuel Price McVey and Margaret Stevens McVey. She was married to Moses on Aug 23, 1831 by the Rev. Joseph Spriggs and they subsequently had nine children between 1832 and 1848. For multiple reasons Moses became interested in 1837 in moving. They packed their covered wagon and headed west via Charleston, an Ohio River ferry, and Ohio to the White River Valley of Indiana. After a time there, they decided to return to the hills of Greenbrier County WV and lived out their lives there. Their farm at this time was a few miles west of Fort Spring and west of Mt. Vernon Methodist Church, on the south side of the Greenbrier River. Elizabeth became ill during the summer of 1851 and died Aug. 5, 1851.
