The information below I found on RootsWeb.com Family Trees. It stated William Edwards was from Wales. From information given to my family by his grandson Solomon Edwards he was from Cardiff Wales. I am still looking for the information that someone in the family gave to me years ago which is misplaced at the moment and have not been able to get a copy of it from other family members. I think William also lived in CT before moving on to NY.
William Edwards from Wales Spouse: Christina Smith/Schmidt b. 15 April 1770, Germantown, Columbia Co., NY. d/o Johannes Schmidt b. 23 Nov 1746 and Ann Bartel b. 1747. William and Christina were m. in Germantown, Columbia Co. NY.
Children: (all born in either Montgomery or Columbia Co. NY)
Elizabeth b. 6 Apr 1788 m. Elisha Allen b. 1786. William b. Oct 1789 John b. 6 Jan 1792 m. Ann Van Schaick b. 1790 Staten Island NY Maria Barbara b. 11 Apr 1794 m. Thomas Hubbs b. 1790 Eleanor b. 1797 m. William C. Hubbs abt. 1794 Solomon b. 15 Dec 1799 d. 1888 Steuben Co. NY m. Sarah Noble b. 31 Jul 1803 Middlebury VT, d. Steuben Co., NY Amanda b. 1808 m. John Olmstead b. 1800 (both died Steuben Co., NY)
My line is Solomon and Sarah Noble. Solomon, his sister Amanda Edwards Olmstead and their spouses all moved to Steuben Co. and had families.
I am interested in hearing from anyone that has ancestry information on William and Christina or descendant information. I also recall the name Simeon and believe that may have been a brother to William. As I recall the list from Solomon Edwards did have brothers listed.
