I too have an Edwards line from Fancy Gap. I was also told that I am kin to the Allen family of the Hillsville Courthouse incident.But I have not found the connection. My great grandmother was Rebecca Elizabeth Edwards b 1868 she married William Raleigh (Rawley) Davis in 1888 in Fancy Gap.We still have cousins in that area.Rebecca's father may have been Eben.She had several siblings one of which was George. Do you have any info. Thanks.
