Margeret’s granddaughter, Irene Hunt, was a wellknown children’s author. Her book Across Five Aprils is loosely based on the Heagans-Hunt family history, including the story of William Heagan’s joining the Confederate Army. William Heagans, like many who lived in southern Indiana, was a Southern sympathizer; he left his dying wife and five children to join the Confederacy and was never heard from again.
