Re: Billups, Edward 1784 VA
Although we have similar birthdate of Edward Billups, I don't think they are the same person.My Gr gr grandfather, Edward, married Theodosia Wilgus in Lawrence Co. OH.They then moved to Marion Co., IA, where my gr grandmother was born, then to MO and finally ended up in Sacramento, CA where Edward died. Theodosia died in Shasta Co. where I reside and where her children,one which was my gr grandmother, had settled.Theodosia Wilgus sister, Hetty Wilgus, married John Wilgus in Lawrence Co. OH also.
They later settled in Lee Co. IA.I also have an aunt in her 80's that remembers her grandmother Wilgus.Hope this helps.There are a lot of Edward Billups out there who were born the same year. My Edward should have been listed as being born @1784 based on the records I have been able to find here and the Mormon Church.Sincerely, Madeline Bui.
