I am Bonnie Kay Edney. I am the oldest daughter of Dale Lee Edney.Dale was the youngest son of Wm. Fred Edney.I have 2 children:Gregory Michael Edney and Elizabeth Lorraine Edney.I have a sister, Patricia Ann Edney Alsgaard who lives in Sioux Falll, SD.She has one daughter: Laura Elizabeth Alsgaard.
Fred and Ferne lived in Huron, SD for many years.Although we knew there were some half-brothers, there was no discussion in the family of any of that.Wm. Milton and Dale were their children.Both Wm. Milton and Dale have recently passed away.
The first time I heard of Clarence Edney was when I was in college and found his name as the co-author of a textbook I was using in the study of Speech Pathology.Even then Ferne refused to tell me anything and Fred was no longer living.
Back in the 60s my family made a trip to Edneyville, NC, to see what was there. We met a few people but nothing much came of that.Dad wasn't really interested in tracing the family.
Tracing our part of the famliy was kind of at a standstill when we couldn't get past figuring out anything about Fred's father.I haven't looked into this stuff in years so don't have a lot else to offer.
