Omega was born about 1885 (probably in Hinds Co., Ms.) to John and Kate Eddings, who lived near Omega and Hillary Reed on the 1910 census of Lincoln Co., Ms. Apparently they married in late 1900 or in 1910 and had at least 6 kids, including 5 daughters.John Eddings was born 1/1834 in Ms. (possibly Hinds CO.) and Kate was born 3/1845 in Ms. John's mother was Martha Eddins (Eddings), who was born 1808 in Tenn. His father was dead before the 1860 census (name??), but was born circa 1804 in Louisiana. Martha and son John were in Hinds Co. on the 1860 census and John & Kate were there on the 1870, 1880 , and 1900 census'. During the period 1900-1910 John moved to Lincoln Co. Hope this helps. I am not of this Eddings family. BOb.
