    Soldier Invalid: application 823,025 certificate 593,678 MO
    Widow: application 747,592 certificate: 561,171 MO

    (note--the family dropped the "S" off Edmonds with the next generation but since his CW files are under Edmonds I'm keeping the S for his index.

    He and brother James T enlisted and were discharged same date, same place.
    William: He made his X mark. Blue eyes, dark hair, fair complexion, 5'10.
    James T: He made his X. Gray eyes, sandy hair, fair complexion, 5'10.

    MARRIAGE::::::::::::::William Anderson Edmonds + Harriet Elizabeth Rollens 10 Dec 1871 Madison

    (note in CW pension files SHE says he married first at 28, she married first at 17 but that doesn't make sense.

    I'm having trouble with William's dates:
    1880 says age 35 which means about 1845.
    1900 says age 62 and August 1837.
    On the 1850 census there is no William or W Edm* that fits within that range except this guy in Henry County, TN which matches excellently because brother James is there (both born VA). I can't find anything good that works in 1860 or 1870.

    1850: District 13, Henry, Tennessee (ADJACENT TO CALLOWAY CO, KY)
    *** Wm Edmunds 37 <1813> miller VA (( I can't find this family in the1860 census.))
    Frances Edmunds 36 <1814>VA
    James Edmunds 14 <1836> VA ((is this James Theopolis who married Catherine Stinnett?))
    William Edmunds 9 VA <1841> ((is this William Anderson who married Harriet Rolands/Rollins/Rolans who is supposed to have been born in 1837 per his 1900 census or 1845 per his 1880 census or was supposed to be 22 in 1864 when he joined the Army (and also listed as 22 on "detachment" and muster out card in 1865))
    Mary A Edmunds 3 TN (m: Jonathan Dennis)
    George W Edmunds 4 months TN (I can't find him again)

    1860: ?

    Enlisted Sept 7, 1864, Ironton, MO
    Mustered in DeSoto, MO, Oct 22, 1864
    for period of 6 months.
    Age 22
    Born Lunenberg Co, Virginia
    where credited Castor, Madison Co, Mo 3" Cong. Dist (whatever that means?)

    Nov 1864: Guarding Bridges
    Mustered out April 8, 1865. (same with brother James T.)

    1870: ?

Second wife? Find marriage in TN, MO or points between? This looks like second wife (or third if Frances was the second??))

    (reported to be a son Henry E who died young 1880-1881) not proven by me

    That's pretty close to Reuben's 1900 census date and WWi reg card date of Oct 1883.

    He operated a small grist mill on the land of W A Zimmerman in Yount, Perry, MO (per CW pension file)

    William A conveyed land to sons prior to his death. In his CW pension file the boys had to say that it was a gift and not trying to deplete the estate so that the wife could collect a widow's pension.
