Ancestry.com probably has a similar file.

IMPORTANT: The 1920 US Census has an enumeration error on this family, and the indexers have perpetuated the error with one of their own. In the handwritten enumeration, the head is written as "J B Hedrick [should be Mrs. J B Hedrick, judging by the facts of the individual]. She is 55, widowed, "F" (female--very heavily overwritten as a correction, because the enumerator apparently did pick her up as a male, but corrected it). She was born in Georgia. Her parents were born in South Carolina. In the index on Family Search and other sites, the indexers have transcribed the "F" as "male" (perpetuating the error). When researching this family, study the handwritten record carefully! The names of all four children in census (and their occupations) match the names in J B Headrick's 1913 obituary. Since he died in 1913, he would not be listed in the 1920 Census.
