How to pronounce Edwy Lyles Vardaman
I was talking with my 83-year-old dad tonight about his grandfather, Sgt. John Forsythe Vardaman, CSA, and I happened to mention John's father, Edwy Lyles Vardaman.I pronounced it "ED-wee".

Dad immediately corrected me."ED-why," he said."Grandmother spoke of him many a time, and she always called him ED-WHY."
So, for the benefit of others who may also have been mispronouncing my gg-gfather's name, there it is!
