The Colonial Descendants of William and Mary Hedges


This unmodifiable, read-only package is 27 pages long and represents everything that Peter Craig was able to discover about the Colonial Descendants of William and Mary Hedges. The author [Craig] can report, that much of what has been published about the Hedges family in New Castle County is erroneous. They were unrelated to the descendants of Samuel Hedge who resided across the river in Salem County or William Hedge and his sister Dorcas Cox who migrated from New England to Salem County NJ in the 1690s.

This white paper covers three generations starting with William and Mary Hedges through Charles Hedges (1673-1743) and William Hedges (1705-1742).

You may view and print, but not copy, the first page for free.  To make the image of the first page of the package bigger, click on it and then adjust at the upper left corner. The entire whitepaper may be downloaded up to two times for a price of $50 using PayPal. You may view a portion of these group sheets and download them for free.

Using Adobe’s free Reader software or Adobe Acrobat (which you have downloaded from, opened and on cue designated as the default for opening PDFs), you will be able to key word search and print this indelibly watermarked read-only PDF once it is downloaded.  The search will highlight the approximate location(s) on the page(s) where the key word appears.  Some “hits” may be missed due to OCR errors.

These packages were prepared by SCS Genealogist Ron Beatty for those who want to see all Peter Craig’s detail around their earliest Swedish colonial ancestors.
