From Day to Day…

Yesterday I found the owners of my EDWARDS family… Today I found the owners DESCENDANTS!! They have a website!! A very well documented website! Listing the owners family back multiple generations, all of whom seem to have had members of my family passed along to each generation. I learned that their family line includes the Choates family. My mothers maiden name… Is “CHOATES”. The Choates line that I am also researching came from the same area. This can’t be a coincidence. Could it be that one set of my families owners married and maybe even owned another side of my family? Is that how they met and eventually branched out to become me? I sent an email to the owner of the website, explaining to her who I was, what I was looking for. I have a feeling that she will respond quickly, seeing as how I have one thing that she doesn’t have on her site, a photo of Jane & Center Edwards… HER family member. This journey is quickly becoming an unfolding story that I never expected to find.

Just in case you were wondering what I said….

“Hello,

My name is Tierra Kellow (Choates) and I have recently come across your website and I wanted to know if you happen to have a photo of Center & Jane Edwards? I have one, I haven’t found a direct DNA link but I have found through records that he owned my 3X great grandparents. I am elated to have met you because you are the only person so far that I have found online with information on Center Edwards and his family. I have a copy of scans from a book full of North Carolina Edwards family members, both the white and black sides and I wanted to touch base with you to see if you have heard of it.
I appreciate any assistance that you may be able to offer.
Sincerely,
Tierra L. Kellow”
