Hi, this line is my family also.My ggg grandfather was James Cooney. (Mary Ann's brother).I have the following info on James Edmunds:
Mildred Edmunds was a twin.Her sister was Milly; I believe she died young.(I know this makes it confusing) James Edmunds b. 4/3/1743 VA. m. Sarah Lavender John Edmonds b. 1710 or 1717 m. Mary Watkins b. 7/18/1796 VA John Edmonds b. 1684 CT m. Elizabeth Aldred Gabriel Edmonds b. 1660 England m. Susan ? Robert Edmonds birth unknown
Note the different spellings.
James Edmunds (Edmonds) served in the Revolutionary War running supplies.I'm in the process of the D.A.R.I'm trying to get marriage records for Mildred & John Cooney.
