Henry Oliver Hedgecoxe

Henry Oliver Hedgecoxe, pictured to the left, was hired by Willis Stewart in approximately 1845 to be the office manager and chief surveyor for the Peters Colony Land Grant Company, whose headquarters were in the present-day area of The Colony. On July 16, 1852, armed colonists raided the Peters Colony offices, where they seized Hedgecoxe’s files and ordered him to leave the settlement. This event later became known as the Hedgecoxe War. Please visit The Colony Public Library to find out why the colonists exiled Hedgecoxe. Photo courtesy of the Plano Public Library.
