  • George W Edmonds was reported in the 1900 and 1910 censuses as a childof Elijah Edmonds and his wife Nancy Mitchell.  But he is not includedin a list of children of this family given to Suzanne Kennedy by hergrandmother.  The age of 14 in 1910 does not match George's reportedbirth date of Nov 1893 in 1900.

    Elijah Edmonds married Nancy Magnolia Mitchell.
    My grandmother gave me all the names birth dates of her uncles andaunt. I pulled all the information from obituaries, and have copies ofa lot of headstones for this generation.
    The correct listing of their names is as follows:

    William "Billy" Calvin - 21 Nov 1888
    Oscar Sheldon - 3 Oct 1891
    Rev. Timbert Shroud "TS" 4 May 1892
    Manervia - 13 Apr 1895
    Thomas Tony ( my Great Grandfather )  11 Dec 1896
    Joe W. "Dewey - 1 Apr 1897
    Gurley Roosevelt - 12 Jul 1900
    Willard Emery 22 Dec 1902
    Hicks A - 15 Feb 1905
