Hi Jack,
You do say Edward "is" the one who went south. The problem I have is I can't find proof. I questioned a lady that is in several organizations and I think if I were to try to join one of them that I could not use the one listed in "what looks like bible records". I would need documented material for that.
Also, you maybe be right about Dr. Edward being the son of an Edward, but all the years I looked at that material, I decided that it was one man in NC that had sons Edward and Azel? I may be wrong, but that was how it looked to me. The rest of what you have, from what I know, is somewhat "mixed up". Marton and Mastin is the same person and that is my ancestor Azel's only son. Mastin had 3 children Osborn, Mary and Doctor. I "think" the name David is a misnomer?? The family stick to the David, but in every record but one his name is Doctor, Doc or D., the only other is the 1880 Prentiss County Census and a lot of the names on that list were also wrong! So, I determind that the David that the family latched onto was wrong! I think that Doctor did not like his name either, as he used the initial D. quite often. One other thing, Leston and Preston are not twins, just "sound" like twins. Preston passed away many years ago, but Leston, whom I know, is still living. And William "Markson" Marcy also has many descendants living in Lee County.
I have seen the will on the Itawamba site. Its my opinion that there is a line or 2 left off that will? Also, there are some mistakes in Bob Franks short paragraph on the family as to some of the son-in-laws who move here with them.
If you know of any documents that prove the "Edward that went south" is ours, can you tell me where to get same.
