Hello Dot & All,
I've collected some Edmonds bits & pieces, while looking for parents of
Richard Edmondson b. 1805, m. Margaret (Barron?) & in Union Co., GA in 1834.
There was a Francis (Frank) Edmonds Wilkes Co., GA, who left a
Wilkes Co. will of 9 July 1799. Francis had a Rev. War bounty landgrant in
of 400 a. in Wilkes Co. 1785 & 5 tracts in Ogle. Co. Rachel (1824 Jasper
Co., GA will) & had: Richard (@1769-1840 Newton Co., GA); John B@1733 m.
Franny Brown 2 Feb 1806 Wilkes Co.; Ann Dixon Edmonds; Catherine; Salley m.
Travis McLendon; Eliz. Bailey Edmonds; Mary; Dorothy (Dolly); & Eloch (Eli?
There was an Eli Edmonds 74 b. GA, Penfield PO, Greene Co., GA 1870 census).
Part of this came from Fredie Downs' user home page at:
Francis was the son of John Edmonds, supposedly b. Wales, who also had
Sidney, Wm., John, & a dau m. Mathew Cox. They m. into the Buckner & Tatum
families. This John Edmonds may have m. a Mary Hinton. There is a Halifax
Co. (VA or NC) will of a Hinton, whose exrs. John & Mary Edmonds(on?)
refused, that I probably have somewhere. This John claims to have had no
relatives & it wouldn't surprise me if he didn't start out as an Edmondson.
Most of this should be in the EDMONDS archives, as there are several people
researching this line. Nancy Edmondson Wood
