Hi Robert ,
The Bethany you are talking about was married to John Edwards , she was a Taylor daughter of Samuel Taylor , John
Edwards traved to Stone CO., MO. With the Crownover's and died shortly after getting to Missouri check out the Stone
CO., Mo. , Cemsus and you will see or better yet check Stone CO., site and you will find his estate being handle by a
relative of mine for Bethany he was her brother. The Taylor's and Edwards were related and traveled together alot . I
am researching the Taylor , Edwards and Grooms along with the Cooks and Brinson's . My Taylor's lived in Jackson CO.,
AL and Franklin CO., TN at Crow Creek Valley befor moving to Stone CO., MO . If this Bethany was not Samuel's daughter
without checking my notes she was daughter of Zebedee Taylor Samuel and Marys son . Zebedee married Mary Jane Grooms
in 1827 and they lived as well as were married in Franklin CO., TN. They had 8 children , Mary was full-blooded
Cherokee Indian as were her parents George Grooms and Millie Grooms nee Cook . Samuel was said to have been a Indian
Agent in Bedford TN. This is where his son Zebedee met his wife Mary Jane Grooms . Zebedee and Mary moved to Stone CO.
, MO. about 1850 as did there son David Taylor he got a land grant for particpating in the Civil war , he got this
grant in Stone CO., MO. Anyway Mary Jane expired in 1860 in Stone CO., and Zebedee remarried a Martha Palmer a widow
woman and he expired in 1870 . Don't have alot on the Edwards yet , but I can put you in touch with someone that can
as he is related through Bethany Edwards nee Taylor. First I must conact him and let him know you will be e-mailing
him . He lives in North Carlonia , now he came from Kansas to NC. His father still lives in Stone CO., MO. I will be
waiting for your e-mail conferming this e-mail as well as putting you in contact with the Edwards boy. You can e-mail
me at cartersa@...
, my name is Shirley Carter nee Taylor Have a nice day.
