    Dear John,
    I just spent a few days with my Uncle David Stewart Edwards. He came tohelp me with genealog y. All he could add to what you and I have wasphotographs and a few stories. I will try t o send you a few photographs.(Only of David Stewart Edwards - James' Brother) I also don't kn owanything about James except that he married a woman named Blanche. Therewere no children f rom that marriage. Then he married your Aunt Ruth Hoytnext. I am in touch with my Aunt Nanc y Edwards-M. who currently lives inLakeland, Florida. She seems to know more than anyone, bu t it is takingme some time to pull these stories out of her. She grew up in Orlando.They use d to hang out at Errol Estate as children, where William Edwardsused to run that place. Nanc y says William and another fellow had a banknote together. The note came due, and somehow th e other fellow couldn'tpay so William got stuck with all of it. Apparently that's why theymo ved to Zellwood. James and David lived there but Nancy was quite sureMargaret Jean had move d away. The new place in Zellwood (still nice)eventually burned down. Do you know about the se stories? Nancy eludedto some family dissension. Not sure what that was all about. Scann ingwhat I have - I think it's the same as you. I'm mainly interested ingoing further than Wil liam and Isabelle - on to Scotland research.Thanks to you I have a starting place now. Kee p in touch. Let me knowif these don't send.
    Leah Graham
    (Okay - I just tried and the pictures are too big.) Do you have a PO Boxor some sort of mail ing address that I can send you some copies of what Ihave? Write back. I've got younger an d older photos of David StewartEdwards. I believe I have a photo of Isabelle - although I wi sh someonecould verify it is her. I also have photographs of Grace ElizabethMitchell-Edward s (David's wife) and their three children when they weresmall. Let me know.

    Dear John,
    Thanks for the message about the Edwards family. I can send you some information on my fathe r and the Edwards family. Even though he died when I was very young, I do know a lot about h im and the Edwards family.I don't have his death certificate and expect it burned in the fir e we had in 1956. He is buried in Apopka, Florida, in the Edwards familyplot. His brother D avid is buried there and so are his parents and little brother Willie. I try to visit it i f possible when I go toFlorida. He was called Stewart.
    I do have Mother's death certificate. She was cremated and is inurned(sp?) in Clinton beneat h the plaque with her name on it beside Hugh andKitty. That's true for Ada also.
    If I understand what Leah Graham is saying, she is the granddaughter of David Edwards. Her m other Pamela Jean Edwards was Dave's daughter. I doknow of this family, but have not met the m. I believe that Pamela isdeceased. I am in close touch with Nancy Edwards Mabry who is Da vid Edwards' daughter by his first marriage. She lives in Lakeland, Florida and I see her ea ch year we go to Florida. Dave had a second marriage to Grace Edwards. They had two or thr ee children, I believe, Dave, Jr.,Pamela, and ?. Dave and Grace divorced and she moved wit h the children out west, California or Utah?
    This is what I copied off the tomb stones in Apopka: William Edwards: (mygrandfather) Nov. 29 , 1869 - July 4, 1934 and his wife (my grandmother) Isobel T. Edwards - May 31, 1875 - Jun e 28,
    1939, James Stewart Edwards, March 8, 1898 - March 19, 1940 (my father).Next time I go ther e I will get the dates of the other family members. I know there is a small boy "Wee Willie " and David, both sons of William and Isobel. Jean Edwards Cooledge, their daughter and my a unt is not buried there. You might look in Mother's address book for the dates of Jean's bir thday and death. I recall her birthday was on November 1st but don't know the year. She die d about 1976 or so in Tampa. We were quite close. She was married to Alvin Colledge and the y had no children.
    I will make you a copy of some of the Edwards family history. Mother dida good job of findin g out about it and writing it down.
    Hope this fills you in a little bit until I can get some more. Thanks for the up-date on Jud y. She's in our prayers.
    With warm regards,
    Ann

    Subject: James S. Edwards
    John,
    I hope you don't mind me popping in every time I get a tid-bit. I am just afraid I'll forge t and I know how important it is to shareinformation.
    On the 1930 US Census, James S. Edwards is listed living with his wife Blanche G. (whom I be lieve I told you did not have any children) but also on that census is one son William G. wh o Nancy Mabry tells me has since passed on. On that 1930 Census it listed William as bein g 6 at last birthday. Blanche was born in Pennsylvania as were both her mother and father wh o aren't listed. But here's something. It lists James under "occupation" as a "grower" an d under "industry" it lists "ferns". One bit of information Nancy told me was that his fathe r William Edwards founded the first citrus growers co-op in Florida. Also known as the "Plym outh Citrus Growers Association". They have a web site as well.The web site talks about fern s. I bet James had something to do with that along with his father.
    Important: Nancy also mentioned a very large newspaper article in theApopka Newspaper abou t William Edwards. I would bet that this would tell where he immigrated from and if he immig rated with his family or not. I wish your brother could help us get our hands on that. Nanc y said she had it somewhere, but couldn't find it.
    Your poor brother - he's going to have a lot of work to do. I hope he's a good sport!
    Bye for now, Leah Graham

    John,
    First - type in Errol Estate Country Club in your search engine. It will bring you to the E rrol Estate web site - photos, etc. It is an old mansion in Apopka that is now a resort wit h a 27 hole golf course. It describes it in the history. It was owned by John T. Pirie. M y AuntNancy says it was an incredibly beautiful mansion where some importantand exciting gal a event was held every weekend. Many servants - each of the servants had their own guest hou se and the houses were all named.
    Second - After printing that info, type in Plymouth Historical Trail in your search engine (i n Apopka). Look down where it mentions the Errol Estate. It mentions that William Edwards u sed to run that enormous place with all it's cattle, etc.
    According to my Aunt Nancy, William Edwards and John T. Pirie (both fromScotland) were bes t friends and both came down from Illinois. Nancy sayshe must have acquired the bulk of hi s wealth in Illinois (where he was married to Isobel, and where his first son James Stewart w as born). William Pirie (John T. Pirie's great grandson) lives at the Errol Estate with his w ife currently. I emailed him just two days ago to see if he had any information on William E dwards. Interestingly enough - he does! He had to go out of town for two weeks so I'll hav e to wait to see what he has. But I have a hunch that there are photos of William Edwards ha nging in the Errol Estate on it's walls. His words were "when I returnI will get to you al l that I have ASAP". I'm excited and I will keep you informed.
    Two things: 1) According to the 1900 US Census - William Edwards immigrated from Scotland i n 1886. Isobel in 1892. According to the 1920 US Census - William naturalized in 1890 (does n't show immigration year). According to the 1930 US Census - William immigrated in 1884, Iso bel in1894. So there is a two-year discrepancy for each. Naturalization records do not go b ack that far unfortunately. So I am left to search Scottish records. We have their birth pl aces, we can try those places.Or we'll have to search passenger lists. 2) I still need a ma ilingaddress for you.
    Keep working with Ann! I'll keep talking with Nancy. I just wish she had a computer!
    Catch you soon.

    Leah,
    Leah,
    No, I haven't heard them. Thanks so much for retelling these stories.What is the Errol Esta te? I recieved some data from my Aunt Ruth's daughter, ANN about the Gravesites in Apopka, o f the Edwards Family stones. I have a twin brother whom lives in Apopka, starting in July of t his year, it so happens, and have just asked him to go and photograph the Edwards Headstion es, & area, etc., after Ann e-mails him what cemetery and where the location might be. Look s as if Ann, and a few people on the Edwards side were friends.
    I'll send you her e-mail of that data, also. right after this is sent.
    Keep digging.. Did William come straight from Scotland? or is there more Edwards here befor e him in America?
