- Harriet "Hetty" Eadds/Edds apparently was dau. of John C.b. 1806 VA and Sarah b. 1811 TN Edds/Eadds they are on the 1840/50 Jackson Co. and 1860 Lavaca Co. TX Harriet is age 4 b. ALon the 1860. Harriet Edds is on both the 1870 Jackson Co. and 1870 Lavaca Co. TX census, there is a Harriet Edds age 20 on the 1880 Lavaca Co. TX. A Hetty J. Eads to J. B. Ray 10 Dec 1874 Jackson Co.. There is a James Ray age 17 b. TN with a Nancy Ray age 37 b. TN on the 1870 Jackson Co. living with a Reico family. John C. Edds family is the only one I have found ever living in Jackson Co., the 1870 in Jackson Co. take 21 Jul. and Lavaca Co. taken 13 Jun. so could be same person I have see people on the same census more than once. Can't really say if they are the same person.
