In the newspaper Tarboro Free Press, Tarboro, NC, Jan. 29, 1833, is found......

The Oxford Examiner, Oxford, NC says that on Mon. last, Mr. Solomon Hedgpeth, of Wake (formerly Granville) went into the woods to cut a tree, hich falling differently from his expectation, fell upon him and crushed him to death--his head and other parts of his body were literally broken into atoms. Mr. Hedgepeth was an honest and respectable citizen, and has left a family and many friends to lament his dreadful end.

I have no interest in this family and only post this as a resource.
