Preface

It is with pleasure that I present to the descendants of John Edwards this genealogical record in which they may

"In endless line the fortunes of the race
Go back for years and grandsire's grandsires trace."
F. H. King.

In the compilation of the data contained herein, I have received valuable assistance from many of the descendants and allied families; and it is appropriate that I here express my sincere thanks for assistance rendered in this work, which has for its object "To attend to the neglected and to remember the forgotten." Burke.

I wish to express my indebtedness to Col. Albert M. Edwards and to Dr. E. Gardner Edwards, who have given me the full advantage of researches made by them prior to 1906, the year in which I began my work; and to my father, Dominicus J. Edwards who has given me more assistance than any other descendant, because of his intimate knowledge of the Jonathan, Nathaniel, and William branches, extending over a period of more than eighty years.

I shall be grateful to any and all who call my attention to errors and omissions; doubtless much has been omitted which might have been avoided had I had the opportunity of making a personal examination of many public records, to which for various reasons access has not been possible. It is hoped that at some future date a second edition of this record may be compiled, in which all available data, together with a greater amount of general information, incidents of family history, family anecdotes, copies of legal papers, etc., not now available, will appear.
