  • ID: I2288
  • Name: William ?father? EDMUNDS EDMONDS
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1813 in VA per CW on fold3 page 9 (moved to TN 1841-1847 based on Mary's birth place)
  • Death: in I NEED HELP CONFIRMING these kids. Is James T the same person as James Theopolis?
  • Note:

    I CAN NOT prove that the son James is James Theopolis Edmonds in Bollinger County, MO who marries Catherine Stinnett
    and that son William is William A Edmonds who marries Harriet Rollins
    and that daughter Mary A is the one who marries Jonathan Dennis (see 1900 in Perry)

    BUT both James T and Wm A were born in Lunenberg Co, VA per their CW applications on fold3.
    Both were examined by WPP Butman, Examining Surgeon and they both enlisted in the town of Ironton.

    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.

    The James Edmonds in Calloway County, KY living with the Bennett family wasn't born in VA
    so be very careful just collecting names when Ancestry or someone's tree offers you a "hint".
    He is probably Mary Ann Edmonds' (Mrs. Jeremiah Bennett's brother)


    1850: District 13, Henry, Tennessee 1 NOV 1850 (ADJACENT TO CALLOWAY CO, KY)
    Wm Edmunds 37 <1813> miller VA
    Frances Edmunds 36 VA
    James Edmunds 14 <1836> VA (NOT MIDDLE TENNESSEE as shown on Lydia's DC--says Lunenburg, VA on his Civil War Pension File)
    William Edmunds 9 <1841> VA (Says born Lunenburg, VA on his Civil War Pension File)
    Mary A Edmunds 3 <1847> TN (m: Jonathan Dennis)
    George W Edmunds 4 months (July, 1850) TN (no trace of him again)

    ((I can't find this family in the 1860 census. James might be in Arkansas but then three of these kids turn up in Bollinger County, MO))
