You used the term "proved" in regards to Thomas Edmonson married to Margaret Lyles. Could you share this proof with me. My cousin Julia Liete worked on this for many years and could only come up with a "good guess". I would dearly love to have proof but I cannot find any documents that links Thomas Jerald Edmondson to Thomas Edmondson and Margaret Lyles nor can I find confirmation of Thomas and Margaret Lyles married. If you have this proof it would save me many hours of research. I have been looking through the Caleb Edmondson because of the use of the name Larkin. Thomas J's son Christopher named one of his children Eligah Larkin. I haven't found anything definate yet. If you have proof I can finally stop looking.
