I have found in the 1850 Georgia Census, Gilmer County, Subdivision 33 a William Edens, 26, living with the family of John Douthel or Donthel. William is listed as farmer. John is a gun smith.Can anyone claim this William Edens?? Because I really want too! Elizabeth Collis is living with her family, John Collis and Lovica? in the same census. On Ancestry, William is shown on page 90 and Elizabeth is shown on page 109. William and Elizabeth married in Gilmer, Georgia. This information is adding to prior messages 502 and 504. Is this just coincidence or what??
By the way, if anyone related to the Collis' reads this, John Collis' mother Anna P Buchanon Collis is listed as Dwelling #759 and John is #760.
