Tow Family Genealogy Forum
Jim, will be glad to furnish your cousin with Edney's info I have but Marshall Styles
has written a book on the Edney's. Will look for Title & send later. The Town of Edneyville, NC was named after Jane Edney Towe's father.
Dr. Towe was also the first coroner for Yancey Co. untill 1921. All death certificates he signed were with the "e" also.But have been told Dr. Towe went by the name of Banks till he was 16. He's father died before his birth and his mother remarried.His Mother and David Banks had 5 daughters. So we don't really have info other than Dr. Towe's signature on how Towe name was spelled. Can not locate his Father's grave or d/b. Nor his grandfather to see how they came to Yancey Co. NC
