Bio and Links
66 yrs. old, born in Toledo, Ohio. On my father's maternal side I am descended from the Hedges family of Maryland/Tiffin, Ohio/Grand Rapids, Ohio.

My grandmother was Addie Hedges Motley. Her father was Alamander Hedges, son of either Josiah Hedges or Charles Hedges (a bit of confusion there).

On my mother's maternal side I am related to the Rupp and Utz families of Waterville, Ohio. Her mother was Bernice Utz Rupp and was married to John Marleau whose family history I know zero about as he was an orphan.

I'm semi-retired and am a lifelong writer of poems.

Alamander Hedges
Alamander was my G G Grandfather. I desend from Addie's sister, Laura Hedges. Laura married Leslie Rusk and their daughter, Louisa, married Lester Fretter and their daughter Irene is my mother. I would like to know about Alamander's first wife, (Mary) Esther Gordon. They were married 6 Nov 1862, had one son (no name). Esther died when their son was 6 years old--or they both died when he was 6 years old. Could have been Typhoid at that time.
Alamander then married Esther's sister, Louisa Gordon, 16 Apr 1868 and they had 4 daughters.
Alamander married the third time to Margaret Stout 25 Mar 1884 and they had one son, Charles.
Any information on (Mary) Esther Gordon Hedges would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Hedges
My relation came from Frederick County, Md. and moved to Seneca County, Ohio. Issac Hedges dod 1842 in Seneca township Burial? his wife Barbara Staley Hedges dod 1830 place of rest Bethel Churchyard Frederick County, Md. His son Charles married Stella. I don't have their birth or death dates. I think they died in Seneca County. Their son Josiah Hedges dob 1829 dod 1916 and he married Maria Shafer dob 1829 dod 1899. They are in the Grand Prairie Cemetery Marion County, Ohio and most of their children are there also. Their daughter my Grandmother is Nora Bell Hedges Smith dob 1874 dod 1961. She is in the Charlesville Cemetery (new name Zion) Frederick County, Md. with her husband and two children.
I hope this helps you. I couldn't find your grandmothers name in my paper work.
