!CENSUS:1810 Wayne Co., NC p. 236/809
David Edwards age 45+ (bef 1765)
10101-00001-0-6
My analysis (who each person *might* be)
1m 45+ (bef 1765) = David Edwards (c1764)
1m 16-25 (1784/94)= John Edwards (1790/94) son
1m 0-9 (1800/1810)= Barnabas Edwards (c1806) son
1f 45+ (bef 1765) = Lydia (---) Edwards (1760/65), wife
6 slaves;


!CENSUS:1820 Wayne Co., NC p. 463
David Edwards age 45+ (bef 1775)
010001-00001
Slaves=3120-3000
My analysis (who each person *might* be)
1m 45+ (bef 1775) = David Edwards (c1764)
1m 10-15 (1804/10) = Barnabas Edwards (c1806) son
1f 45+ (bef 1775) = Lydia (---) Edwards (1760/65) wife
9 slaves;


!CENSUS:1830 Duplin Co., NC p. 152

10001-100010001
Slaves=630100-202000*
FPC=200000-201000**
Total Persons=25***
My analisys (who each person *might* be)
1m 20-29 (1800/10) = Barnabas Edwards (c1806)
1m 0-4 (1825/1830) = William Edwards (c1826) son
1f 60-69 (1760/70) = Mother? Mother-in-law?****
1f 20-29 (1800/10) = Catherine (---) Edwards (c1806) wife
1f 0-4 (1825/1830) = Daughter?
* Where did all these slaves come from?
** Who were the free persons of color?;
*** Total adds up to 24, not 25
**** Probably Lydia Edwards (1760/65) Barnabas's mother. She was divorced from David Edwards in 1831, so probably already living away from him in 1830;


!NAMED:13 Dec 1838 Wayne Co, NC, Will of David EDWARDS as "my son Barnabas EDWARDS" received $1.

Slaves=110000-102000
Total Persons=12
My analysis (who each person *might* be)
1m 30-39 (1800/10)= Barnabas Edwards (c1806)
3m 5-9 (1830/35) = 1-William Edwards (c1825) son **
"" 5-9 (1830/35) = 2-Barnabus Edwards (c1834) son *
"" 5-9 (1830/35) = 3-Lemuel J. Edwards (c1840) son *
1f 70-79 (1760/70) = Mother? Mother-in-law? ***
1f 30-39 (1800/10) = Catherine (---) Edwards (c1806) wife
1f 10-14 (1825/30) = Daughter?
1f 0-4 (1835/40) = Catherine Edwards (c1838) daughter
*It appears the census taker lumped all three sons into one age group when that was incorrect.
**It's possible that William (c1825) never went to TN for he was back in Wayne Co., NC by 1850. If that's true, then this is an unidentied son probably born in the 1830's;
*** Probably Lydia Edwards (1760/65) Barnabas's mother
