Donna sorry I really don't have anymore on her here what have on Edgecomb but you may already have this EDGECOMB MARRIOTT According to the 1860 census of Hawcreek, Morgan Co., Mo. (#151) he was b. Ca. 1783, prob. Brunswick Co., Va. This is, however, two years before the marriage date given for his parents: other sources give 1788. He is listed (betw. 40—50 yrs old) with wife and children in Roane Co., Tenn. census of 1830. Jerry Ray Smith says he was not found in the 1850 census of Morgan Co., Mo., although William W. Williams notes above 1860 census. The Morgan Co. Hist. (1979) merely states born before 1811” and continues, [he] was in the Civil War, believed to have been killed in that war. If he was indeed born as late as 1788, his age of 73 in 1861 would seem to preclude a very active part in military service: it is more probable that he may have been confused by descendants with another man of identically similar name. Mrs. Robert E. Spencer of Sonoma, Calif. has discovered, “Edgecomb Marriott [no parent known], b. 1844, Morgan Co., Mo.; d. 29 May 1865, Springfield, Mo. Enl. 13 Jul 1863 at Jefferson City, No., age 19, in Co. D., 6 Mo., S.M. Cay., Union; mustered out, Benbou Bks., Mo., 18 Jul 1865 “ (sic). [Discrepancy between reported date of death and muster—out roll date could be accounted for as an administrative action of the army in “release by death’ to clear the roll]. Though year of birth is the same as for William Mashflat’ Marriott, and the discharge date and place Benton Barracksthe same for three Marriotts, Mr. Williams could not identify the Edgecomb involved. Apparently, however, Edgecomb ) disappeared sometime after the 1860 census: the similarity of name of Edgecomb (1844-1865) and his apparent death in service possibly may be the source of the tradition that the older Edgecomb died in the Civil War. The Morgan Co. Hist, p. 265, says Edgecomb and brothers came to Missouri about 1840 and settled in Morgan Co.. His wife was named Hetti, and was thought to have been half Cherokee Indian.
