I have seen on the Internet that other researchers have indicated William Edens was born 3/20/1841. (When it comes to genealogy, I have learned a long time ago not to believe every thing I read or hear). Here is some info that leads me to believe William was born in 1844.

On the 1860 census of Hancock Co., Tn., father John Edens (age 47) and wife Fanny (age 46) were listed with their children: Absolem (age 20, born 1840); James (age 18, born 1842); William (age 16, born 1844); Robert (age 13, born 1847); and Mary (age 11, born 1849).

On the 1900 census of Indian Territory was listed :William Edens (age 56, born 3/1844); and wife Eliza (b. 12/1842).

On the 1910 census of Washington Co., Ok. was William Edens, age 67.

Reviewing these "possible facts", I feel William was born in 1844. Bob Eddings.
