There is a biography of Mr Edenborn and his fascinating history posted at http://files.usgwarchives.org/la/winn/bios/edenborn.txt

Although he is often erroneously refered to as the inventor of barbed wire, "his patent number 270,646 is referred to as 'the machine that fenced the west'."

A very fascinating story.

Would be interested in knowing of descendants.

Godspeed!

Bill Strickland
