Edmund Cartledge (b. 28 Sep 1834 in Columbia Co. GA, d. 27 Apr 1865 at Midway, Bullock Co. AL, bur. in Midway Cemetery where these dates appear on his tombstone) is very probably Edmund, a son of Edmund (1788-1834) and Lucretia Lightfoot, who is mentioned in Edmund's will signed 5 Oct 1834 and authenticated 3 Nov 1834 in Columbia County.
Edmund (age 16, b. GA, ploughman) appears in the 1850 Census for Burke Co. GA, p. 296, residing with Mackey McNorrice and his three children.

The 1870 Census for Bullock Co. AL, p. 16, has the following entry:McKinnon, Cameron (35, NC, farmer), Rhodee (29, GA), Charles (2, AL), [and five Cartledge children:] Euphemia (15, AL), Edmund (14, AL), Green (11, AL), Lee (7, AL), Nathaniel (5, AL).
Though Edmund died in 1865 I have found no records in the AL Archives that prove he saw Confederate service.
