He bequeaths his estate to his eight children.
Joshua Hedges furnished supplies during the Revolutionary War. On August 5, 1769, George Washington with Mrs. Washngton and Patsy, lodged with
Joshua Hedges while on a trip to the Warm Springs (George Washington Dairies 1748-1799, Vol. 1, Page 340): August 5, 1769 " Prosecuted our journey to ye Spring (By Jacob Hites) Bated at Opeckon and lodged at Joshua Hedges". Page 344: September 9, 1769 "9 set out on my return home about 8 oclock but broke the Chariot and made it 11 before we got a mile Reached Joshua Hedges" On the 10th of April 1738 James Davis of Orange County, Viginia. divided his land grant into three tracts. He sold 300 acres to Richard Morgan; 300 acres to Peter Hedges and 275 acres to Solomon Hedges (DB2, page 475, 488, 481, Orange County, Virginia. (On microfilm Berkeley County, West Virginia Courthouse.) In the same year, 1738, Frederick County, Virginia, was formed from Orange County, Virginia, but the court did not meet until 1743. Morgan Bryan and his wife Martha, of Frederick County, Virginia sold 11 January 1743 their 1,020 acre tract of land on Tully's Branch to Joshua Hedges for 46 pounds current money (DB1, page 27 Frederick County, Virginia.) Joshua Hedges did not keep the southern most part of this tract long. He sold 220 acres 1 September 1747 to Robert Paul. Joshua Hedges received a land grant of 391 acres 7 November 1754 from Lord Fairfax. This land is located where the James Rumsey School is today and joined in the west the land he had purchased from Morgan Bryan and the land that Peter Hedges had purchased on the south. Jonas Hedges received a land grant of 261 acres on 7 November 1754 from Lord Fairfax. This tract of land lies on the south side of Joshua Hedges's grant (Land grant records, Richmond, Virginia & Land grant plat map by Galtjo Gertseema.)

Joshua Hedges, with his wife, and eleven children, came into the country in 1804. They came with team and wagon from Berkeley County Virginia, their native place, to Brownsville, Pennsylvania, a town on the Monongahela River. There they loaded everything on to a flat-boat, and traveled thus to Marietta, and thence by wagon, over the rough and almost impassable roads, to Zanesville. Their household goods, which were packed in eight or nine large trunks, were left at Marietta, to be shipped up the Muskingum. The shipping agent neglected to send them for several weeks, leaving them exposed to the weather, and the goods were utterly destroyed. The family went to Lancaster in Fairfield County, where they made a temporary location, arriving the seventeen day of May, of the above year. Mr. Hedges died there the same summer, and in the fall the family came to Walnut. They put up a cabin on section nine, which, with other lands, the father had entered, and moved into it on Christmas day. In 1812, Mrs. Hedges married Henry Dreisbach, of Pickaway Township, and moved with him to Bloomfield, where they kept a tavern. The children of Joshua Hedges were Joshua Jr., John, Obed, Jabez, Cynthia, Phebe, Rhoda, Julia, Cyrus, Morgan and William. All are now dead but Jabez. He was born December 28, 1789, near Martinsburg, Virginia. He married Maria Williamson, and first settled on Walnut Creek, but in 1829 moved to his present location on section sixteen. His wife died May 13, 1868, and he now lives with his son Joshua. Mr. Hedges was a volunteer for a few months, in the War of 1812, but lay sick most of the time at Fort McArthur.
