From Edwards genforum message #57 Posted by: Gary Holmes email@example.com Date: November 26, 1997 at 01:05:22 In Reply to: RE:Reps,Bennett,Wm.Franklyn EDWARDS 1770 Va-SC-GA by Claudia(Edwards)Morawski of 14810
Greetings,Claudia, I read your info about the early Edwards of Va. My great-grand-father, Wm. Bennett Edwards, lived in Oklahoma but was probably in AR before that. He married Julia Mosley in AR, I think. I do not know much else.
From: GARY HOLMES
To: Subject: Mosley
Marie- You recently posted some info on genforum about the Edwards-Mosley connection. Thank you for the information. The identities of Wright Mosley and Matilda Pyron were all new to me.
The Julia Mosley you mentioned as a daughter of Wright & Matilda was my ggrandmother. She married William Bennett Edwards. You can find him in the 1880 Franklin Co., AR census (as Bennett Edwards) in the household of Nancy Holt, his mother who had remarried after William Bennett Edwards' father (M. H. Edwards) diedin the Civil War. At the time of the war, Bennett & his mother, Nancy,lived in Upshur Co. (now camp Co.), Texas.
William Bennett Edwards, Julia Mosley, and Nancy Holt are all buried at the Short Mountain Cemetery in Le Flore Co., OK. I have been there several times. My mother, who as a child knew her grandmother, Julia Mosley Edwards, told me that the parents (Wright & Matilda) were killed in a wagon accident after moving to Arkansas. The children were raised by the oldest brother, Thomas Jefferson Mosley, in Franklin C., AR.
I'd like to know more about the Mosley's and about what became of Thomas Jefferson. Thank you for providing such useful information.
