Following Logan Hedges' death in 1914, his estate was divided amongst his six children. His daughter Etta Hedges Brooks and husband Joe N. Brooks sold her share of the estate to her sisters, Estella and Mae in 1915. Then his daughter Tillie Hedges Murray wrote a will in 1917, deeding her share of this estate to the same two sisters. Next, daughter Nora Hedges Wickersham and husband J. T. Wickersham sold her share to her brother Hal Palmer Hedges in 1925.
Thus, by the time of the deed described below, Logan Hedges' estate was in the hands of Palmer Hedges (1/3 part), Logan's other daughter, Jeanette Hedges (1/6), and Stella and Mae Hedges (1/4 each). These four came together in 1930 to sell their father's estate to the Louisville Girls Scout Council.
