My father's family is from Yancey Co. NC and I have been able to trace his ancestry back as far as William "Bill" Edge (b: abt 1804 in NC). He was married to Hannah McMahahan (b: abt 1812 in NC). I believe Hannah was the daughter of James McMahan (b: 1775 in Craven Co., d: 1850 in Yancey Co.).

I cannot find any info on where William Edge was burried or how he came to be in Yancey Co. Any help with his parents, etc. would be greatly appreciated. There seem to be many Edge's in the Bladen Co. area of NC, so I'm hoping maybe someone there might have info on a relative who moved west to the mountains.

Anyone who can confirm any of the info I already have about William or Hannah would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...
