Additional Information

William Edwards:

Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 3rd Great Grand Father.;


!NOTES:B/D not known, approximate birth year based on age per various census records:
1850 = 24, ca 1825/26
1860 = 32, ca 1827/28
1870 = 44, ca 1825/26
1880 = 53, ca 1826/27;


!NOTES:Birth Place is Wayne Co., NC per the 1850 census.;


!NOTES:Parents are not proven. I strongly suspect Barnabas Edwards is his father, but have no definitive proof.;


!CENSUS:1830 Duplin Co., NC p. 152
Barney Edwards age 20-29 (1800/10)
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;


!CENSUS:1840 Madison Co., TN p. 118
Barnabas Edwards age 30-39 (1800/10)
030001-1010010001
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;
