1870 Census: Edwards/Smotherman/West/Woodson/Winsett
Posted by: Gregg Bonner (ID *****6047) Date: March 15, 2003 at 21:32:11
  of 1195

I am interested in information on any of the following families. I would very much like information on the descendants of Weldon Edwards and Rachel (West) Edwards. And if one exists, then I would really like information on Weldon Edward's estate sale (i.e., list of names of people buying stuff). Does anyone have wills for any of these people?
