Am researching Martha Jennings THOMPSON ADAMSON HEDRICK.  She m. 1835 in Edwards Co. to Aaron ADAMSON, then m. 1852 in Edwards Co. to Joseph HEDRICK.  Together they had 18 children that I have identified.  Am searching for descendants of each.  Am especially interested in learning the whereabouts of daughter Martha A. ADAMSON who m. 1867 in Richland Co. to James M. WARD.  They are listed in the 1870 Wayne Co. census, but have found no further reference to either of them.  Martha ADAMSON HEDRICK d. 1901 in Wayne Co.  Any info. about these families would be appreciated!
