Good Morning Edwards researchers,

I have my Edwards family back to Isaac EDWARDS, b 1790-1800 in NC.  
That's all I know for sure.  He was in Montgomery Co, GA paying taxes in 
1822.  He had two sons and a daughter born between 1820-25.  Their names 
were William, Ferniford, and Sarah.  His wife's name was Rachel.

He also served as the attorney for Dempsey WOOD, SR. who received a 
Revolutionary War pension.  Dempsey WOOD was from Bertie Co, NC.

I am also researching another EDWARDS from NC.  His name was Matthew 
EDWARDS who migrated from VA to Duplin Co, NC.  He was the second husband 
of Mary MYRICK DUKE.  Her father was Francis MYRICK of VA.  Her first 
husband was John DUKE of VA/NC of the DUKE and BYRD families.  Matthew 
EDWARDS and Mary MYRICK DUKE were married by 1755 and soon after moved to 
the Duplin Co area.  Mary's daughter Ann DUKE married Onesimus FUTCH, RS 
From Duplin Co area.  They are my ancestors also.  

There is a will for a Matthew EDWARDS in the NC archives which I need to 
get a copy of, hoping to find a reference to his step daughter Ann DUKE 

Do you match any of these names.  Please respond.  Good luck with your 

Tonia Edwards
