Hello ,
Believe David E. Hedgpeth is the father to Amanda and may be very well be
Manerva (Hedgpeth/ Hedgepeth) Johnson along with her parents and brothers
on the 1850 & 1860 BentonCo. Mo. Census. They are calling her Amanda J..
10 years old on the 1850 Census & 20 years old on the 1860 census. Of course
she was Married to James F. Johnson on the 1860 Christian Co. Census and that
census says she is 18. But Manerva's tombstone says Born Feb. 11, 1840,
died Jan. 25, 1903 and is buried in the Shipman cemetery Christian Co. Mo.
so that would make her 20 years old.
The Transcribed 1850 Benton Co. Census for the Hedgpeth's is;

Surname Given Name Age State Born
Hedgpeth Amanda J. 10 Tennessee
Hedgpeth David E. 36 Tennessee

Hedgpeth Isaac N. 8 Missouri

Hedgpeth John L. M. 12 Tennessee
Hedgpeth Miranda A. 38 Tennessee

The Transcribed 1860 Benton Co. Census for the Hedgepeth's is;

Hedgepeth Amanda 20 Tennessee
Hedgepeth David E. 44 Mo.
Hedgepeth Isaac 18 Tenn.
Hedgepeth John 21 Tenn.
Hedgepeth Maranda 47 Tenn.

One of our cousins Pauline Trigg here in Arkansas. Had this info on our
Great Grandmother Manerva
Hedgpeth. It was wrote in a small note book that was her mothers.

Dads Mother - Nerva Hedgspeth
Borned in north carolina

Dads father James (Jim) Johnson
Born in Tennessee

Dads Grandma
Ann Hedgspeth (hedgpeth)
Irvin Hedgspeth (hedgpeth)
mothers side

We show James and Manerva on different census's, with their birth
states reversed, back and forth from Tenn. to N.C.
Do you have any other Info on Amanda J. Hedgpeth?
Isaac N. Hedgpeth gained a rank for such a young age in the
Confederate Army Col. 6th Regiment, if he is the one in the same it looks like
he died and is buried in Alabama. I entend to go to the Libary and order
Microfilm to look at his and what I think may be some of my Johnson's
that fought and enlisted in the same Regiment and Area. Thought might
glen some more documentation.
James C. Johnson
