Here is an entry from I found it using the "advanced search" option. I don't have access to Ancestry, but will provide a lookup site so you can request one, if you like. The volunteers on this site are VERY nice, so when requesting a lookup of the card info, also request someone send you the actual image privately. That way, you will be able to see Edward's signature, if you haven't seen it before.
