Edwards/VA
Posted by: C.E. Callaway Date: September 14, 2001 at 08:51:48
  of 963

Hi to all,
I am searching for information on Levi Edwards, born circa 1802 and wife Mary??
I can't even find a marriage record.I think they were married sometime after 1840, since Levi was listed in the Patrick census just him and one male under 20. Then in 1850 they were listed together with four children, ages 8,6,4 and 2. (I think)
Would everyone please take a look at this family and see if you recognize anyone or maybe point me in the right direction as to the parents/siblings of Levi or Mary?
Much appreciated,
C.E.
