In Reply to: Edwards Family on Edwards Mill Road by Harold Edwards of 1372

I found this article from the N&O in case it is helpful.

http://lnweb02.co.wake.nc.us/WEB/HISTPRES.NSF/aac7d56ca8fd884b852563be00610639/b9a875da9bacf5798525662f00478d71!OpenDocument

"What is known is that the mill was purchased in 1866 by J. Thomas Edwards, who was succeeded as owner by his son D.M. Edwards. Edwards bought the mill from Scott Tucker, who had bought it from Hines Whitaker. The Edwardses traced the mill's ownership back to 1766, which would have made it the oldest mill in a 2-mile area that included Lassiter's
Mill and Whitaker's Mill. "

There is also this story re: the Edwards family but don't know if they are related to you or not.
