Descendants of David Edelmann

1768/69-1829

 


These pages originally had several suppositions to the origin of David Edelmann born (1768/69.)  Recently, (November 1999) information was published in the Bulletin of the Genealogical Society of Old Tryon County that cleared up the mystery of David Edelmann’s origin.

The eventual purpose of these pages is to follow the descendants of David Edelmann (1768/69) through their migrations across the United States particularly Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and points west.


Editors Note:

We know the least about this lineage, but it is the proven source of my line. 

Very recently in a publication of the Bulletin of the Genealogical Society of Old Tryon County  in an article provided by the research of Philip Leonard and Miles Philbeck has proven the line of David Edelmann back to Germany.  Dr. Bill Eddleman provided the new information in an Email sent December 20, 1999.  I have sent for a copy of the publication that lists the research that Mr. Philbeck and Mr. Leonard.

This is the first concrete information that we have found on this line in quite some time.  The marriage of Maria Catharina Edelmann to Leonard Seiffert suggests a connection to Peter Eddleman of Rowan County North Carolina. More Information.

 

Editors Note:

 

There was at one time supposition that David Eddleman (1768/69) was related to the family known as Peter of Airlenbach. Johann Peter and Anna Margaretha Schäfer immigrated to America on 26 Oct. 1754 aboard the Brigantine Mary and Sarah, Thomas Aldrich, Captain, from Amsterdam, last from Portsmouth--inhabitants from Franconia, Wirtemberg, and the Palatinate. Passenger list includes Adam Schaffer, Peter Edelman, Johannes Edelmann; Joh. Georg Edelman and Hans Edelman (sick).  The similarity of names between these two families probably caused a great deal of the confusion.

Because of the confusion my family had believed that they were descended from one Rueben Eddleman supposed brother of Peter Eddleman born (August 15, 1762.) We know now that Rueben Eddleman was a descendant of David (born 1768-69) and apparently was not related to the Eddleman’s from Airlenbach.  More information on the Airlenbach family is found at the following link. Peter of Airlenbach. Another document that vaguely supports the Rueben theory was provided by Pearl Eddleman of Muskogee Oklahoma, this document was written in 1939 from information provided by her mother and father Mary Daugherty Eddleman and David Jones Eddleman. The likelihood that David (1768-69) was descended directly from this family is very slight, there might be some collateral relationship (Were they brothers?) between the family of Peter of Airlenbach and my ancestor Johann Peter  Edelmann.

Bastian/Boston Notes: Bastian EDDLEMAN and Peter EDLEMAN also listed as poles. [Linn, Jo White. 1980. Abstracts of wills and estates records of Rowan Co., N.C. 1753-1805, and Tax Lists of 1759 and 1778. Salisbury, N. C.]

 

David Notes:

There has been a great deal of speculation as when David Edelman was born, speculation runs from 1765 through 1775. I believe that his birth took place in 1774. I think this because of the following documentation from the 1800 Federal Census. Census records show the following:

David Eddleman is listed in the 1800 Federal census for Lincoln County, NC "two males under 10, 1 male 26 and under 45"

Census records usually included the age of the head of household along with the other members of that gender. If the head of household were male he would be listed with the other males. The records show "1 male 26", if he was that male then he would have been born in about 1774.

 

 Cruse Notes:

Bible records show that her name was Mary Ann F. Cruce, other written records show that the Cruse family was well known and documented in Newton County Georgia at this time. The brother of Rueben Augustus, John E. Eddleman married another Cruse in 1824, it seems likely that the women were sisters and that the name was misspelled "Cruce" in the Bible.

There is also another earlier connection to the Cruce/Cruse family, in the late 18th century other Eddleman in North Carolina and later in Georgia, married into the Cruse/Cruce family.

Rueben Notes:

Rueben Augustus (V6) has been reported to be Methodist Minister that married at least three times and had at least 16 known children. His descendants populated much of Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma. His son William Harrison Eddleman was one of eight children from his second marriage. He became a highly successful banker, rancher and businessman in the Ft. Worth Texas area. He purchased the Ball mansion in Fort Worth, which became known as the Eddleman-McFarland house. His only child was Caroline Aurelia Eddleman McFarland, wife of well-known rancher and banker F. Hays McFarland.

 

Tink Notes:

On August 28, 1998 I received a copy of the family record of David Eddleman (1810-1883) written by his son Asberry F. Eddleman. In this document he lists William C. Eddleman born in 1840 in Georgia and Died in 1917 as his brother. I believe that this is truthful but disagrees with the memories of my Uncle James A. Eddleman who was born in 1921. He remembers visting his Uncle Tink in the early 1930's and provided a picture of him and his wife for this web site. Who was Uncle Tink. We have assumed that he was William who lived in Lingleville Texas until his death in the early 1930's. More investigation is needed to sort this out, so for the time being the information on William O'Butler Eddleman while factual doesn't mean that he is a known descendant of David born in 1810. I have recently received an article naming A.W. Eddleman of Bosque County as "Uncle Tink." A.W. Eddleman was the son of Columbus Eddleman who died in 1863 during the Civil War.

 

Sanders Notes:

John and Will Saunders appear living in the household of David and Sara V. (Eliza?) Eddleman, as documented by Hood County school records in the 1870's. These children are remembered by my Uncle James Eddleman as "Uncle John and Uncle Will." I have recently received a copy of David and Eliza Eddleman's wedding license. On this license Eliza is listed as Mrs. S.V. Saunders, I am at this time unsure if my great-grandmother's name was Eliza or Sara. The license was issued in Bosque County Texas, in the same packet of information I was given a copy of the marriage license of Rueben W. Eddleman (Uncle Rube) who was married to an Eliza Jane Lovell.
