I thank you for your prompt reply on Joseph. Here is some info out of a book that devotes a page to the Edney family in the west part of Nashville. "THREE EDNEY BROTHERS-LEVIN, NEWTON AND ALLISON-FROM PASQUOTANK, NC SETTLED IN DAVIDSON COUNTY, TN AROUND 1800. NEWTON AND ALLISON BOUGHT LANDS ON THE HARPTETH RIVER IN 1799 FROM THOMAS MALLOY AND HENRY DUNHAM. THEY OWNED 500 ACRES BETWEEN THE 2 MEN. IN 1801, LEVIN BOUGHT SOME ACREAGE ON THE HARPETH RIVER FROM NEWTON NEAR THE SAME LOCATION WHERE LATER WAS BUILT EDNEY'S CHAPEL." FROM WEST NASHVILLE: ITS PEOPLE AND ENVIRONS by SARAH FOSTER KELLY. I hope this helps some.
