Is there a family connection between Abraham Hedgepeth, Jeremirah Hedgpeth and Joel Walker?

From the Abstract of Will Book I, Nash Co., NC 1778-1868 (Watson), p.267.
" July 12, 1813- Aug. Ct 1815. Will of Joel Walker: Wife-Slyvia, Sons: 1. Micajah- 100 acres where he lives, 2. Johnathan, 3. Lemuel-25 acres where he lives, also that already given to him, 4.
