I found a Mariah (or Marian) Edemy (Edeny) in Pendleton District 1820. Nothing in 1830.

Thomas Dunn Edney in 1840, Pickens District. Nothing in 1850.

Sarah Edney and children, Nancy and Fountain M. in 1860, living close to Nancy Richey, John Ransom & Mary Ann Edney Owens, and, Sarah Edney & her husband, Benjamin B. Lusk.

By 1870, Sarah Lusk is a widow and her mother Sarah "Sally" Eddy is living with her. I have not been able to locate either of these women in 1880 or 1900. Sarah A. Lusk did not die until 1904 and is buried at Salem Baptist Church.

Sarah & Benjamin Lusk had the following children:
Robert M.
Emily (possibly married William Crow)
Leander B.
Mary Alzary.
