Possible children of Lorena, as names are on separate stones stating when born and died, and where buried are as follows:

Virginia Edwards Higgins 1901-1979 buried Cleveland Memorial Park, Shelby, NC
Ruth Edwards Rhodes 1906-1956 Montlawn, Raleigh, NC
W. Crawford Edwards 1893-1967 Nat'l Mem. Park, Fals Ch. Va.
M. Roger Edwards 1909-1970 Union Ceme. Burtonsville, Md.
Clyde B. Edwards 1895-1973 Wesley Chapel Ceme. Harris,NC

I hope this information is helpful to someone. I do not know any other information except what I copied from the tombstones today. In the Keeter Dictionary, it tells who some of these people are kin to, so if you do not have it, it is worth acquiring.
