Kingswood Meeting House. Cemetery Information
Posted by: Stan Edmunds (ID *****7290) Date: March 01, 2006 at 08:40:40
  of 898

I have traced many of my "Edmunds / Edmonds" ancestors to the Amherst / Nelson County /New Glasgow area of Virginia. They were there in the mid 1700's to the early 1800's when my line migrated to Kentucky and beyond. I have reason to believe that my 4th. G.GF. James Edmunds (1743-1826)
owned the "Kingswood Meeting House", I have a April 6, 1813 indenture where he conveys the Meeting House along with a parcel of land containing several other structures over to the trustee's of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Also other members of this same Edmunds family are thought to have owned property around the Kingswood Meeting House.
Where I am going with this is??? Is there a cemetery at or near this location? I have some information that states that James' father John Edmunds (1710-1784) " He was buried on his home place in Nelson County, on the Tye River, near the Kingswood Meeting House" I have a number of other Edmunds that died in the same area in the late 1700's to early 1800's, but I cannot find them listed in any of the postings for the cemetery's in that region of Virginia. Can anyone help me with this??
Thank you.
Stan Edmunds
