Sue , you do have a problem in searching records in Stanly Co. NC. I know that Edmund was raised on Little Bear Creek in Almond Township. In 1792 this area was in Montgomery Co. the trouble is that Montgomery Courthouses burned twice ,the last time was in 1838 . Then the western part( Little Bear Cr.) of the county decided to form their own county of Stanly in 1841,and there have been no loss of records since. All records prior 1841 to 1779 when Montgomery was formed from Anson Co. are lost, and Gen Sherman destroyed most of the Anson co. records. There are census records for 1800, 1810, 1830. Almond township was very isolated in 1810 most trade /milling was done at Melchors store/mill on Rocky River 10 miles to the west and the town of Concord 25 miles west, or Salisbury 25 mlies north. Chances are Edmund`s wife lived within just a few miles of him. I would look at the 1810 cen (if Nancy was more than 18 when married)for females in a household that might be her. From this list start by the process of elimanation, you may narrow your search. That is a long process but knowing the families of Almond township like I do , I will bet Nancy will be one of the list. She may well have been living across the creek like most of my Almonds and Burleson ancestors. Happy Hunting John H. Burleson
