John Miller Edens and Mary Blythe - TN
Posted by: Kaye Eden (ID *****4822) Date: November 11, 2003 at 16:49:40
  of 719

I am attempting to find descendants of John Miller Edens and his wife Mary (Polly) Blythe. The last census I have found them on is 1870 Franklin Co. TN as follows:

Tullahoma, Dist. 15, page 181, h/h 27-27

John Eaton, 46, TN
Mary, 44
Finetti A., 20 (Finetta, Nettie)
Amanda, 18
James A., 14 (Alexander)
Samuel E., 12
Sydney E., 10
Pheba C., 8 (Callie)
John W., 6 (Wiley)
Nancy E., 4 (Bettie??)
Elmira J., 2 (Jenny)
All family members have TN as birthplace. They were in Lincoln Co. TN in 1850 and 1860.

By 1880 Finetta had married Noah Ward; they had a son Charlie. Sydney (female) may have married Lum Cox. I have not found any of the children other than Finetta in 1880 census records that I am certain of.

For several years I have tried to prove or disprove that Samuel E. Edens, my husband's g-grandfather, is the son of John and Mary. I am hoping to find a male descendant of a male descendant for DNA testing purposes. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
