Most of the material on this website is based on the contents of:
A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of John Edwards
by Llewellyn Nathaniel Edwards
Copyright 1916 By Llewellyn Nathaniel Edwards, Toronto, Canada


I have added information from Taylor's Early Families of Raymond, Maine, Spurr's A History of Otisfield, Maine, and Kluge's The History of Casco, Maine, along with census, cemetery, military, and vital records, many of which are online. I have also provided links to other online sources, most of them databases found at the WorldConnect Project, part of RootsWeb. None of these should be considered a primary source.

There are two ways to find information at this website; You can SEARCH using the search page listed in the menu at the left. Or you can BROWSE by clicking on any of the other links.

Are we related? Any long-lost cousins are encouraged to sign the Guestbook. If you're one of the dozens of relatives who signed the Guestbook prior to October 2005, I regret that your message has been lost. My old Guestbook became corrupted and none of the messages could be retrieved. Please feel free to sign it again.


A note about e-mail: I deleted the e-mail account 2/17/17. I am working on removing the email link entirely but it may still exist on many pages. It is no longer a valid e-mail address. You can contact me thru the Guestbook, which I have set up to receive both private and public messages.


The sections Introductory Material and Family Records are taken directly from the Edwards genealogy.

The data contained in the individual family records were first put into a database, then converted to html tables. The differences in this section are (1) I changed the state abbreviations to the contemporary 2-character code, (2) I changed the dates to mm/dd/yyyy format, and (3) I have omitted the line of descent that was included in every individual record. You can determine the line by clicking on the individual's name which will lead you back to his/her parents.

Within the Family Records, the section headed "Comments" contains comments made by the author; the section headed "Other Info" contains information not found in the book and includes the source of the information.

These documents have not been proofread

Other contains information compiled from the book and from other sources:

Timeline: a chronological list of dates pertaining to the earlier generations.
The Crockett Connection were Lydia Crockett and Elizabeth Crockett related? and how?
Edwards and the Civil War: Edwards fathers, husbands, and sons who fought in the War of the Rebellion
