I am decendended from these folks and have a listing of their children and would love to fill in the blanks.
Obadiah married 1st. Nancy Edge, a first cousin. She died within 5 years of their marriage, leaving behind 3 daughters. He then married Rhoda and had 13 additional children. Obadiah enlisted to fight during the Civil War when he was 44 years old and had 13 children at home. After the war, he had the last 3 children.
I have attached 3 photos. This first is the gravestone of Obadiah Edge In Popes Chapel Methodist Church Cemetery, St. Clair Co., AL. The second is of James Edge, and the third is of James Edge, Martha Elizabeth Wyatt Edge and thier son Jerry.
My great-grandfather is James Edge, the eldest of Obadiah and Rhoda's children. He married Martha Elizabeth Wyatt.
