I donot know who were the parents of your Ernest Eddings. I have looked at the 1900 and 1910 census' in N.C. and S.C. to see who had a son born in 1892 named Ernest or Edward. I have had no luck. I looked at Eddings, Eddins, Edings, Edins, and Edens. I estimate that Ernest married Hattie Davis1911-1912. On the 1920 I couldnot find Ernest either. I havenot seen the 1930 census, but have seen a posting indicating he was in Rutherford Co., N.C. on that census. He did die 8/8/1959and is buried in Rowan Co., N.C. Perhaps you already know that. He was known as "Jake". I am not related. If you find his father let me know and possible I can take your Eddings family back a few generations. Bob Eddings.
