Thanks again, you've been most helpful. One LAST question..there was another Edens family--Thomas and Nancy Edens who also had a daughter Elizabeth born CA 1834--other siblings are Mary, Rebecca, Cintha, Clarissa, Sarah and Samuel. Elizabeth is still with the parents in 1870 (now as "Betsey Edens") and she is 36 yrs old. Do you know anything about her? Happy Holidays!
