I was just wondering if anyone can give me more information about one of the Ephraim Eddinses in my database. Here's what I have:
1. Ephraim Eddins was the son of John & Zilpha (Sylvia) Eddins. I show him as born ca 1786 in Orangeburgh, SC, and died 1826 - 1828 in Richland, SC. However, Ephraim doesn't show in the 1820 SC Census. Only James Eddings, who was Ephraim's brother. But there's only one male in that household; obviously James.
2. But, in the 1820 US Census for GA, there is an Ephraim Edins living in Pulaski County. In the household there is one male 26 - 45, and one female 26 to 45. One person is engaged in agriculture. Blakely Eddins, another son of John & Zilpha, was in Pulaski County in 1820.
Here are the questions:
So is this Ephraim E. the same as the Ephraim E. who died in Richland County, SC? If so, why did he go back to SC to die? What is the proof of his death date? Whom did he marry in GA?
