I tried to find Charley or Satola in previous census years, but came up empty. I did find a Charley H Hedrick in the 1920 census in Ray County, Missouri with a son named James T Hedrick. I theorize these are the same Charley's. The difficulty in finding Thomas Hedrick, I have no clue as to his age when he married Nancy Logan. The census has always been consistent regarding the birthplace of Thomas as being Tennessee.
I am really curious about 3 things; 1. where is Thomas?; 2. how did these children come to live with William in 1860? and 3. who was the mother of these children?
Can you help me break down this brick wall?
