I was wondering if perhaps my Edneys are related to yours.Do you know if Samuel and James had a brother or cousin named Thomas Randall Edney?
I take it from the information you provided about James that he was born abt. 1850.Thomas was born 20 Oct 1844 in Cannington, Somerset.His eldest son was named Samuel, and I thought that it might have been a name that ran in the family.I know nothing about his parents.
Thomas married Mary Ann Card and they had at least seven children:
Samuel R. (b. abt 1871) Thomas H. (b. 1 Dec 1873) Charles F. (b. abt 1875) Frank E. (b. abt 1878) Mary (b. abt 1880) Elizabeth (b. 14 Feb 1884) Harry (b. 26 Sep 1888)
I realize this may be a longshot, but I thought I would ask regardless.I would greatly appreciate any information that you think may be applicable.
