This page "breaks" the distinct EDDS families I have identified into
their family "groups". If a family does not link to
another family it is separated here, at least until we prove
a link between them. Each family group will
and information to support that research as I get it. Please forward additional
family information to email@example.com
Families listing, by eldest descendent:
Bartlett Edds was married
in Muhlenburg County Kentucky in 1822 but soon after moved to Illinois.
He eventually settled in Tazewell County Illinois.
Bartlett's first marriage was to Diana Kemper in 1821 in Muhlenberg Co. KY. and they had 10 kids that I can fill you in on.
Bartlett's second marriage is the one we descend from, to Mary Elizabeth Price in 1843 in Tazewell Co. IL. They had 7 kids, and Andrew,
my ancestor, was the 7th child.
Bartlett is my
ancestor and I have the most information on his family.
Please contact me if you would like more information.

Carole Eades for records
show in Muhlenburg County Kentucky in about 1810. I'm almost sure that
Bartlett Edds ties to Carole Eades but have never been able to find a
link. I have a lot of information on Carole Eades if
you are researching this family.
Edds, Joseph & Sarah Leftwich
about 1724 to 1730 this is the oldest Edds/Eades families I have records
on. They come out of Campbell County Virginia. I have a fairly
extensive family tree of there descendents.
My bet is that these Edds
are related, first to Bartlett and second to Carole, but I've yet to spend any
research time on this line. I'd sure appreciate someone helping me with
information on this.
Currently there are dozens
of Edds families living in Louisville and to my knowledge I'm not related to
any of them. Considering Edds is such a rare name that is hard to
imagine. I'd appreciate any information and lineage that anyone can
provide on where the Louisville KY Edds came from.
Like many families from
Kentucky there must of been a fairly large migration of Edds to Texas. I
have nothing on these Edds families but I hope someone will fill me in.
Andrew Milton Edds was born in Pekin IL in
1856 and eventually re-located the family to Kansas, specifically the
Pittsburg/Mulberry, Crawford County, Kansas aera. They had a family
store there that I will post pictures of soon.
Andrews father was most likely Bartlett Edds (95% sure but still lacking a final
100%) listed above.
does seem to be a strong Edds line in New York that I need to expand on as I
find more information. However here is an introduction of one of the
families provided by Kathy Edds ( Mrs. Kenneth T. Edds).
