Mary Edwards Weems VA>NC>TN>MS

I am embarking on search for the origins of Mary Edwards who married William Weems (son of John) in Orange County, NC, 1791. Wm and Mary moved to Maury County, TN, where he died in 1817. She went to Itawamba Co. AR with son, William Ira Weems and daughter, Nancy Smith (wife of Stephen W. Smith). She died in 1839 is buried in Lee County, MS in Smith Cemetery. She had at least one other child, Catherine, who married John Tombs of Maury County (my line). Other Orange County families that seem to be associated with this Edwards line are the Abraham Allen family and the Alexander Dugger family. (Charles EDWARDS married Sarah Dugger 6 Feb 1790 in Orange, NC. John Weems was bondsman.) A Hugh Edwards is listed next to John Weems on the 1781 tax list of Orange County.
