  • ID: I1777
  • Name: Elizabeth J EDMONDS
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 1844 in NC didn't marry Wm D Pruett -- didn't marry Bradley Pratt. Not proven.
  • Note:

    SHE IS AN UNKNOWN. Last seen in 1860 in Buncombe County. Her mother is NOT Margaret Reneau.

    Elizabeth didn't marry a Pruet or a Pratt as far as anyone can figure out. At least not Bradley Anderson Pratt in Knox, TN or William Derrick Pruett in Jefferson, TN

    The Elizabeth Pratt married to Bradley Anderson Pratt is really Elizabeth Walker (the widow of Wm McMillan) which is why she's listed as SECOND MARRIAGE in the 1910 census in Knox.

    The Margaret Edmonds in Jefferson, TN married Wm D. Pruet. 18 JUL 1866 is seen on all the copied trees but they all seem to have been copied from the same source--maybe the usually erroneous OneWorldTree. William Derrick Pruett and Margaret Martha Edmonds (daughter of the JEFERSON COUNTY Edmonds were married in Jan 1867. The 18 July 1866 date was the license date but apparently everyone who copied, copied from someone who didn't bother to click on and look at the actual image. Margaret's father is William C. Edmonds and her mother is confirmed as Margaret Reneau. Margaret Reneau is confirmed mother in 3 Civil War Pension files and Margaret Edmonds' brother's death certificatte.

    Father: William (m1:NancyReece m2:NancyPatton) EDMONDS b: BET 1806 AND 1807 in NC. No, he did NOT marry Margaret Reneau in Jefferson 13 Feb 1840. See
    Mother: Nancy REECE b: ABT 1816 in NC per most of her children's censuses. Two daughters list Reece and Nancy Reece as their mother. Help needed to verify.
