I've got a quote from Mrs. Nells Morris Jenkins. Her publisher was Willo Publishing Co. in Tuscaloosa, AL. She said, "Edward B. Colgin, a wealthy planter, was from Gainesville, AL. His history will be given in Vol. III, Pioneer Families of Sumter County." As you said, she died before that volume was written.
She added, as a preview, that Edward B. Colgin was one of the men on a Commission selected by Gov. Gayle of Alabama to select a County seat and to name the County seat and to organize the Sumter Co. government structure.
Also have this:
Edward Broadnax Colgin, b. 4 Oct. 1789, VA, d. 2 May 1860, Clark Co., AL near Grove Hill, AL. He is buried in Demopolis, AL.
m. 1st March 1817 Charles City Co. VA, Caroline Binns,
b. 1800, d. 20 July 1838, AL, buried Livingston, AL.
Have other information too long for here, also some discrepancies. Perhaps you could help solve them.
