Great Grandpa Hedrick Made Fiddles

James Franklin Hedrick was born 20 March 1887 in Stafford County, Kansas.  He went with his parents, William Cowdry Hedrick and Nancy Mehitable Hazelton, to Oklahoma in 1895.  I remember my great grandfather very well.  He had a little shop by his house where he made fiddles.  My mother has the last one he made before he died.  Frank died in 1965 in Chester, Major County, OK.  My mother has a photo of him with one of his fiddles.  I need to get a copy of the photo!
