      Notes 
      • Named for his uncle, the prominent Methodist bishop Elijah Hedding (1780-1852).
      • ELIJAH M. HEDDING is a son of Marcus and Hannah (Sherman) Hedding, and was born in West Chazy, Clinton Co., N.Y., on July 31, 1807. His grandfather was James Hedding, and a brother of the well-known Bishop Hedding, of the Methodist Episcopal Church... Elijah M. Hedding passed his earlier years on the paternal farm, working for some time also on other farms by the month, and engaging, besides, in quarrying stone for the Ogdensburgh and Lake Champlain Railroad. By constant industry, and by the practice of much self-denial, he subsequently became a large land-holder in Belmont, and one of the foremost and most influential farmers of the town. At one time he owned nearly one thousand acres of land in town, but has deeded each of his sons a farm, leaving him about three hundred acres of productive land for his home farm. Republican in politics, he has filled many offices of responsibility and trust, was a justice of the peace for eight years, town clerk a good many years, assessor, commissioner, etc. He is a member of the Methodist Church, and was a steward in the church for twenty-five years. He occupies a substantial and attractive dwelling which he erected twenty-four years ago, and has twenty-three grandchildren. On Dec. 20, 1831, Mr. Hedding was united in marriage to Emeroy N., daughter of John Lewis, who came from Middlebury, Vt., in the year 1812, and settled southeast of the village of Malone.
