EDWARDS, William Asbury (1839-1909) was b. in Casey Co, KY and md.
Nancy Josephine "Josie" Harrod in 1862 in Edmonson Co, KY.
Their 10 children were Martha Jane, Jessie Tomes, Bonny Anna, William
M "Willie", Rosa Belle, Mary Tabitha "Tobe",
David Newton, Charlie Luther, Sarah Sylviana, and Paulus Clinton Clero.
I believe (but have no proof) William Asbury Edwards' parents were
Thomas Edwards b. abt 1806 who md 05 July 1829 Casey Co, KY to
Rhoda E. Godbey as they appear on the 1830 & 1850 Census of Casey
Co KY and have a son named William Edwards (age 16 on 1850 census of
Casey Co KY) . Then, the Thomas Edwards family are on the 1860
Census of Edmonson Co KY--William Asbury Edwards md Nancy Josephine
Harrod in 1862 in Edmonson Co KY--and the Thomas Edwards family was
living next door to Andrew L. Edwards on the 1860 Census Edmonson Co.
Then the Thomas Edwards family are on the1870 Census in Casey County KY.
The 1880 Census of Neatsville, Adair Co, KY has Thomas & Rhoda
Godbey Edwards living with their dau., Sarah J. & husband, Peter
Foster. William Asbury Edwards' Civil War file states he was b. in
Casey Co KY and when he enlisted into the Civil War he had been
living in Edmonson Co 5 years. The William Asbury Edwards
family lived in Edmonson & Hart Co the remainder of their life
while the Thomas Edwards Family moved back to Casey Co and finally to
Adair Co KY. I'm trying to prove with documentation that
William Asbury Edwards is s/o Thomas Edwards & Rhoda Godbey.
I'm wondering if Thomas Edwards & Rhoda Godbey Edwards are buried
in Casey Co or Adair Co KY. Anyone have connections to this
