I done hit a brick wall with these two. On Ben or Benjamin Edmonds I can find anything before 1930 census. Which on the 1930 census it said he was born in Mississippi.I don't know really where his was born or when he died, who his parents are. All I have is Ben Edmonds 1886 -1943. Married Laura Holmes in 1918. She died Nov 1970 in New Orleans.
