Kenneth, Thanks for the response.I am searching for information on Edwards's wife, Arminda Hammond.Is there any information in your family tree that would give me any clues? Are there any unususal names that keep popping up that would give us a hint as to her father or mother's names? Did Alexander have any siblings? In the 19th century it was very common to name children after grandparents, so I am looking at the first names of the grandchildren as possible leads to follow to find the parents of Arminda and my Thomas. Thanks so much.
