William,
Just about any history book you find on Wharton Co. TX. will have reference to Gustavus E. Edwards. "Austin COlony Pioneers " by Worth S. Ray, Publ 1949, Austin, TX. has short biography of EDWARDS. "The History of Wharton County 1846-1961" by Annie Lee Williams has information.
Found a J. H. EDWARDS of Wharton Co. that was a LT. in CSA.
Possible son or nephew?

You may try the Wharton CO. Library (branch) in El Campo, TX. for biographies. Might look at history of Williamson Co. TX. online for information on "Three-legged Willie" Williamson.
