Arthur C. Edington was born March 15, 1896 in Lewis County, Kentucky and died May 6, 1975 in the same county. Arthur was an army private in World War I. He married Myrtle L. Criswell (1908-1988). They are both buried at Ball Point ( Jordan ) Cemetery on Tar Fork in Lewis County. They had nine children. Their youngest daughter is married to my first cousin.
Arthur was the youngest child of John Sherman Edington and Amadella Manley. Jahn and Amadella married October 5, 1885 in Lewis County.Besides Arthur, their other children were: 1.Mary E. "Mamie" (9/3/1889-10/19/1906)-married Lewis G. Collinsworth-no children-family members say she died during child birth, 2.Laura Mae (2/18/1889-3/21/1954)-married William Little-ten children-buried at Mt.

Arthur's father, John Sherman Edington was born September 28, 1855 in Lewis County. He died June 16, 1928 in Lewis County. John, Amadella, and their daughter, Mary are all buried in a field, where they lived. I found their graves, but their headstones are face down in the soil and the area is not kept up. I plan on uprighting and repairing their headstones.
John was the son of Thomas S. Edington and Elizabeth Barngrover, who were married in Clermont County, Ohio. They moved to Lewis County in the early 1850's. I have more. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
