Good Morning, I just found this while looking for other Adays. I have seen queries about Edmund here.
The following note comes from Mary Scott HAIR: "CORRECTION: The picture of Edmund Aday's grave marker appears in the Fall Quarterly. However, it would seem that Aday. was not a Confederate, as area residents have supposed, but a Union man. We thank Elmo Ingenthron for his letter in which he said, Both the First and Second Arkansas Cavalry operating in this area were Union. The 2nd was stationed in Springfield in November 1864, and was sent from there into Arkansas on scouting expedi tions. At one time, they were stationed in Ozark. They patrolled the area around the telegraph line as it was often cut during the war and many skirmishes took place along it. We still seek an answer to this question: Does the name Edmund Aday mean anything to you? If so, please tell us about it."
(This was from a 1962 Library NL, enter Edmund Aday in Google search).
I am interesting in corresponding re, Albert Aday and Mary Olive Aday. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Thanks.
