Seeking information on Sarah Exum Edwards ATKINS (b. 1834) widow of Ben K. ATKINS, (dates unknown). As a widow, married William Andrew Jackson OMAN, my great grandfather. To the best of my knowledge, all were born in Isle of Wight. Sarah Exum Edwards was the daughter of Exum Edwards (b 1809, d. abt 1838) and his wife Sally W. Holt (b. 1813, d. aft 1860).Believe that Sarah Exum Edwards had family ties with EXUM family since her middle name and her father's given name are both EXUM. Also, seeking informantion on parents of William Andrew Jackson OMAN, (b. 7 May 1834, d. 21 Aug 1912). Only information on William A.J. OMAN's father, William OMAN was that he married a widow named Martha (SUMMERELL) PILANT(d) on or about 24 Sep 1833 based on a marriage bond issued in Isle of Wight. Children of William OMAN and Martha were William A.J. OMAN (above) and Julia OMAN. No information on Julia OMAN (at all). Would appreciate any information on Sarah Exum Edwards, Exum EDWARDS, Sally W. HOLT, Ben K. ATKINS, Martha SUMMERELL, Thomas PILANT(d)and most importantly, on my Great Grandfather, William OMAN. Any theories or possible connections between EXUMs and EDWARDS. Any bit of information might help me on my research on William OMAN, my stumpling block.
