Marcus M. Edwards
Middle initial found on Floyd Co. cemetery survey and 1900 Bartow Co., GA census. Using the 1850-1900 census records,
birthdate ranges from 1816 to 1824. Floyd Co. cemetery survey provided birth and death dates used at this time. Death location
is based on residence of Bartow Co. in 1900 census, two years before death. Susannah Edwards, age 50, is in the household in
1850 Floyd Co., GA census. This researcher believes she is Mark's mother.

Mark Edwards, age 48 yrs. 6 months, farmer

Previous researchers of this man believe him to be Mark A. Edwards who served in the 16th GA Inf. and 22nd GA Heavy
Artillery (CSA). These units were out of Jackson Co., GA. After examining the GA CSA records, GA CSA pension records
and the Jackson Co. census records, this researcher has determined Mark A. Edwards is the son of Gideon Edwards of
Jackson Co., GA.

Mark M. Edwards was a private in the 101st.Regt. GA Militia, 856 Dist., Bartow Co., GA. He enlisted 3-5-1862.

Sarah A. Edwards
Using the 1850-1880 census records, birthdate ranges from 1822 to1827. Floyd Co. cemetery survey provided birth and death
dates used at this time. Death location is based on Bartow Co. residence during 1850-1880 census span.

Sarah A. Edwards' maiden name is currently unknown because no marriage record for Mark and Sarah Edwards has been
located at this time. Per family lore provided by Mike Edwards (Miami, FL), the marriage probably took place in SC. Sarah is
supposed to have damaged her feet walking the trails from SC to GA.
