I have amended the date of Hepzibah Smith's death, from 1942 to 1946. Since Tom Riddle attended Hogwarts from 1938 to 1945 and he is alleged to have murdered Hepzibah while working for Borgin and Burkes then 1942 is too soon. Dumbledore states that his memory of his interveiw with Riddle taked place ten years after the Hepzibah Smith memory. Riddle congratulates Dumbledore for being appointed Headmaster, and this appointment occured in 1956. Therefore the Hepzibah Smith memory must be 1946. As she died two days later, her death must occur in 1946. --Potty Harrer 03:26, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Do we have any source that she was in Hufflepuff? The fact she is descended from Helga doesn't necessarly mean that she was in that House. --Parodist 19:17, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I've changed it to the general wizard individual infobox. Jayden Matthews 19:49, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Image of Slytherin locket
The image of Salazar Slytherin's locket looks like it's actually Regulus Black's locket. I can't see the "S" (which seems to be the only way to distinguish the two lockets from each other by appearance). Could it be replaced with another image that is more obviously of Slytherin's locket? 220.127.116.11 03:09, October 16, 2011 (UTC)
- Fixed. Specifically, the image was of the Noble Collection's R.A.B. locket. 1337star 03:40, October 16, 2011 (UTC)
Not a muggle-born?
Wouldn't it be possible that she can be a muggle born, despite being descended from Helga Hufflepuff? JK Rowling did say that muggle borns are descended from squibs and it is likely that there could've been a squib somewhere in Helga Hufflepuff's descent that Hepzibah Smith can from.
