    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: Bob_Edmonson Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.edmonson/159.1.1.1.2.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi Linda, My great grandfather is Robert Coleman Edmonson who died in Red River County, TX near Clarksville, TX. He is the eldest son of Sidney Pettes Edmonson who is the eldest son of Robert Spilsby Edmondson who was the youngest son of Richard Coleman Edmondson. Robert Spilsby Edmondson fought in the War of 1812 and died in MS. Richard Coleman Edmondson fought in the Revolutionary War. Manly Bailey Edmonson was a younger brother of my great grandfather. Since my posts in 2010 I found Bettie Hazel Edmonson as a daughter of Manly Bailey Edmonson. My grandfather is Samuel Robert Edmonson and my father is Samuel Robert Edmonson, Jr., both deceased. I have the marriage license for Sidney Pettes Edmonson from Williamson County, TN as well as the marriage license for my great grandfather and great grandmother from Williamson County, TN. I also have sent in DNA on this line of the Edmonson family and it checks back as a good DNA match to Richard Coleman Edmondson. I was not aware of much ! of this for quite some time but I am now aware of it. One of the problems in the Edmonson line is proving that Sidney Pettes Edmonson was the eldest son of Robert Spilsby Edmondson. I have searched in vain to find any records stating this and the DAR and the SAR will not accept the fact that they lived and traveled together most of their lives. Census records prior to 1850 do not show the names of the children etc. My great grandfather is clearly shown as the eldest son of Sidney Pettes Edmonson on the 1850 census. Another good friend of mine, Ken Edmondson, is having the same problem as his great grandfather was John Coleman Edmonson who died in Tishomingo County, MS in 1855 prior to the death of Robert Spilsby Edmondson, the father of all of the children. Possibly you might know of a will or a document for Sidney Pettes Edmonson that would help prove this, or a valid Bible reference or obituary or something. Anyway, that is how I am related to Robert Spilsby Edmondson and! RIchard Coleman Edmondson, Sr. It is nice to hear from you.
