Barb, I am looking for family information relating to James Clarence Edmonds b 16 Aug 1861 d about 1947 married to Emma Mary Alderman and his brother Darius Edmonds b 9 Jan 1859 d about 1936 in CA. I read something that said contrary to family information a death certificate shows the father is John Edmonds but he was known as Absolem. I'm really struggling with this family. I have an 1860 census in Flat Rock, Bartholomew, IN with a Darius and then 1870 with Darius and James but in the house of Absolem & Julie Ann Dark in 1860 and Nathan & Julie Ann Carter in 1870. It shows the last name of Dark. Family believes this to be the correct Darius and James in Indiana but future tracking of these two shows them living and dying as Edmonds. Is this your same James Clarence Edmonds from this and other postings?
