Does anyone have any proof of any connections either by marriage or blood between Francis Edmonds/Edmunds (various spellings) and Azariah Bailey (various spellings)both of whom lived in Halifax County, Virginia, before 1795? I am an Edmonds descendent and Baileys seem to be allied with Edmonds in some way, maybe more than the references I have found.
       Descendents of both Azariah Bailey and Francis Edmonds are eligible for NSDAR membership through Public claims made to the county court in Halifax County, Virginia. Descendents of John Edmonds, son of Francis Edmonds & Rachel _?_, who married Winifred Buckner before 1776 are also eligible through public claims of Amey Powell Buckner, her mother.
       Francis Edmonds was born not much later than 1736 (where?)to have a grandson born in 1776. He first appeared in Halifax County, Virginia, in the early 1770's. He moved to Wilkes County, Georgia, and received land grants there c. 1784-86. He made his will in Wilkes County, Georgia, in 1795 and died there in 1799.
       Azariah Bailey also migrated to Wilkes County, Georgia, where he or another man by that name was a witness to the will of Francis Edmonds/Edmunds. One
of the daughters named in Francis's will had married _?_ Bailey by the time of the 1795 will.
       Later a William Edmonds married a Rebecca Bailey in Wilkes County, Georgia,22 August, 1815. This William Edmonds' father might have been Richard, son of
Francis Edmonds. This William Edmonds b. 1785-1795 served in the War of 1812 from Wilkes County, Georgia. Later moved to the area of Perry and Bibb County, Alabama.
       Which Bailey man did Elizabeth Edmonds marry? Who were the parents of this Rebecca Bailey Edmonds b. c. 1794-1800 died before November 1845 Perry County, Alabama? What were their connections to Azariah Bailey? Any
possibility that Azariah Bailey was a son-in-law of Francis Edmonds or that a son or other male Bailey relative married Elizabeth Edmonds before 1795?
