Hi Bill and the rest of our family from Sue Eddins Basham,

You might remember I wrote asking for help a few months ago.
I needed help with my family tree for my Dad who was turning 90 on November 8th.
Through the soundexes this is what I have at this point:
Abraham Eddins married Amanda J Miller 12-22-1840
William Abraham Eddins married Sarah Catherine
William Clyde Eddins married Rebecca Jane Hinegardner
Fred Albert Eddins ( now 90) married Susan Lucinda Rakes
Fredda Sue Eddins (me) married Ronald Michael Basham
Michael Kevin Basham married Sylvia Mae Goode

Also have more information on other Eddins families in the same soundexes I will send these on a separate email. Hope they will help someone else. I still have not ruled out some of the families as related just do not have anything to confirm it at this time.

George Edward Eddings
and Myrtle Brown Eddings

From: Peggy Hall
Subject: My Ancestry
Date: Wed. Mar. 14, 2001

Grand parents: George Edward Eddings and Myrtle Brown Eddings
Parents: Orien Finley Eddings and Roberta Nash

I am very new at this but wanted to add my ancestors to the list.
My father was Orien Finley Jack Eddings, married to Roberta Nash
Eddings. Born in Logan County, Kentucky. His father was George Edward
Eddings, married to Myrtle Brown Eddings. I don't know my great
grandfather's first name, but know that he was married to a Key.
George Edward and Myrtle Brown Eddings had 7 children - Elmer, George
Freeman, Bess, Mable, Orien Finley, Rose and Maude. I believe that my
grandfather might have come from Tennessee, because he had some family
in Westmoreland, Tennessee. My father always stated there was some
Indian ancestry in the family, but am not sure how this comes in.
If anyone has any information on this branch of the Eddings family, I
would appreciate hearing from you.

Hi Bill,
I ran across your website last night and I am fascinated with it. We are distant kin by the way.
My sisters and I have been trying for a very long time to find out if we can get a Cherokee roll number.
I used to listen to my grandma Pansy Elva (Middleton) Wilson tell stories of living for a while on a cherokee reservation. The stories were so interesting. I miss grandma dearly so viewing your sight has been interesting and made me feel close to her again. Please let me know if you think we have a chance to get a cherokee roll number. My sister is struggling with health issues and has no insurance and is a single mom. So it would be most helpful if we could get the information.

Hello, Mr. Cook!
My name is David Lee. In recent weeks, my best friend, my Aunt and I have been combing back through our family there's been next to no light shed on our lineage and roots. We were able to find names, and my best friend began to trace them back, and it's come to light that I am a descendant of John Eddings and Elizabeth Weaver myself. As I said on the Facebook group page: During our search, we've uncovered that I've descended from
John Eddings and Elizabeth Weaver
via their son William Caswell Eddings and Edna Moody
via their daughter Elizabeth Eddings and John Conway Jefferson Lee.
via their son Robert David Lee and Louisa Taylor
via their son Robert Nelson Lee and Letha Mary Ladd
via their son Henry David Lee who is my grandfather.
My grandmother was Loraine Vernice Millett (House upon marriage),
and my mother is Anita Lee.
My aunt is Le'Nel Lee, and my uncle is James House.
I hope to hear back from you on this connection and to establish a solid link to our family!
Thank you for your time! David Lee Posted 3/23/2011

I do enjoy hearing about how we are all related so here is my connection with the Eddings family. There is still a problem with the spelling of my grandmother's name (whether it is Penina or Penine). Her only living son seems to think it was Penine but so far, I have not been able to confirm that. She disliked it so much that she just went by Nina (both marriage certificate and gravestone).

I have enjoyed being on the Eddings list. Thanks for any input you might have on the above lines. I can add dates/places and such for anyone else who is interested further. My parents would not believe me when I told them that I thought they were cousins!! ps John Eddings is thought to be descended from Theophilus Eddins who is son of Wm Edens and Rebecca Firth although this theory is unproven.

Hello all,
Here is our Eddings connection:

Dwight C. Eddings b. Feb. 12, 1894 married Opal P. Creek on July 5, 1920. Opal was b. March 20, 1902 and died Sept. 3, 1961.
Opals mother was Zelphia Beard, and Beards are a very large part of our tree. Would there be any chance of someone else researching this branch?
Thank you,

Note, by Bill Cook: Dwight is descended from, James Thomas Eddings, James Bird Eddings, John and Elizabeth Weaver Eddings.

This Eddins family has shown up on the NC/SC border - Anson, NC and
Chesterfield, SC and I can't seem to find info on them before 1850.
John Eddins and Mary Martin also had a son Riley b ca 1842; a son
Jackson b ca 1859
Oral family tradition was the family was 'from Georgia' and that at
least one of the children, Riley went 'back to Georgia, I can't seem to
prove or disprove this.

The Eddings are on my mother's side of the family and I haven't been able to go any further back than John Calvin Eddings which doesn't seem to be related to any of the lines of members that I have seen so far.

Subject: Eddings family Date: 8/21/2005 1:41:10 P.M. Central Daylight Time

From: Cathy Blakely


Ella Jane Eddings was born in Douglas Co. Mo. in 1881. Ella Jane Eddings was the daughter of Josephus Eddings and Lucinda Williams.

Her parents died when she was young. We think she then moved in with her sister Lydia and her husband Aaron "Newt" Fulton.

Ella had my grandmother Millie Mae out of wedlock in Feb. 1899. We are not sure who Millie's real father is but we believe it was Newt Fulton. Lydia and Newt Fulton divorced and then he lived with Ella Jane the rest of his life. (I say lived together because we have never been able to locate their marriage licence).

Ella and Newt then had the following children:
Ouela in Douglas Co. Mo. in 1902. d. 1980
Hershall in 1906 d. 1984
Jessie (female) in 1908 d. 1979
Nelson in 1911 d 1981
Eulas in 1923 d. 1991

Sometime after 1910 they moved to Oklahoma. Newt died abt. 1936.
Ella lived in Sequoyah Co. Oklahoma although I can't find them on any census records after they left Missouri.
Newt raised Millie as his own child and if he wasn't her father nothing was ever mentioned about it.
Millie married Charlie Hill abt. 1919 and they lived in Sallisaw, Sequoyah Co. Okla. They had 2 children.
Robert Lee Hill b. 1920
Agnes Marie Hill b. 1922

Millie married my Grandfather Henry Weatherby in Johnson Co. Arkansas in 1924.
They had the following children.
Bradley G. Weatherby b. 1925 d. 2004
Rosa Lee Weatherby b. 1927 d. 1929
Freda Fond Weatherby b. 1929
Nadine May Weatherby b. 1930
Willis Ray Weatherby b. 1933
Lloyd D. Weatherby b. 1935 d. 2003 (my father)
Ouela and Hershall Fulton never married.
Jessie married Wilburn Harp and they had a son Roy W. Harp born 1923.
Jessie later married Ernest Carver.
Nelson Ray Fulton married and had 2 children.
Margarete Fulton and Carl Nute Fulton (birthdates unknown)
Eulas Fulton married Eva Louise Rose and they had 4 children.
Doris Jean b 1952
Brenda b. 1955
Hazel b. 1957
Eddie b. 1960

Most all of the Fulton family is buried at the Box Cemetery in Sequoyah Co. Okla.
Exceptions are Nelson Ray Fulton who moved to California and is buried there and my Grandmother
Millie who moved here to Missouri and is buried in Pike Co. Missouri.

I am new to the list, having just subscribed today!
I am a direct descendant of William "Rilah" (B) Eddins, thru his son Richard, of Chesterfield Co. S.C. I just recently received some printed material from another Eddins descendant and would like to know if someone else is researching this same family. I am looking forward to meeting other "Eddings". I did not know this list existed until today.

Benjamin Eddins (born May 2, 1735, Orange Co., Va., died Dec. 26, 1818, Huntsville, Madison County, Alabama) and Judith Norris.
Joseph Balus Eddins (born Sept. 14, 1777, died Sept. 14, 1839, Tuscaloosa Co., Alabama) and Elizabeth Walker.
Joseph Balus Eddins (born July 13, 1816, Alabama, died July 7, 1884, Tuscaloosa, Alabama) and Clementine Miller.
Sheldon Augustus Eddins (born Nov. 24, 1867, Tuscaloosa, Ala., died April 4, 1958, Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama) and Ella Bishop Blocker.
Annie Laura Eddins (born Tuscaloosa County, Alabama) and John Gordon Johnson.

Dear Cousins:

I have two Eddings lines, one paternal and the other maternal.

My Dad's line:
John Eddings m Elizabeth Weaver [sometimes called Frances Elizabeth]
Nancy Elizabeth Eddings m Wm Harrison Middleton
Martha Riley Middleton m John C Eblin
Lydia John Eblin m John Pleasant Lawson
Jacob Parker Lawson m Myrtle Frances Creekmur
Irma Harriet Lawson m Louis Alvin Forrest
Delbert McDonald Forrest m Rose Marie Davis
Sharon Elizabeth Forrest m Wm Steven Petrie

My Mother's line:

William Edens m Rebecca Firth
Abraham Eddins m Catherine Towles
William Eddings m Rebecca Chandler
Isaac Eddings m Sarah unk [poss Starnes]
Ezekiel Eddings m Mary Jane Johnson
Newton Eddings m Mary Jane Harper
Newton Thomas Eddings m Rachel Irene Wallace
Mary Elizabeth Eddings m Rillar Farlandi Davis
Rose Marie Davis m Delbert McDonald Forrest
Sharon Elizabeth Forrest m Wm Steven Petrie

I have enjoyed being on the Eddings list. Thanks for any input you might have on the above lines. I can add dates/places and such for anyone else who is interested further. My parents would not believe me when I told them that I thought they were cousins!! ps John Eddings is thought to be descended from Theophilus Eddins who is son of Wm Edens and Rebecca Firth although this theory is unproven.

Bill, attached is the Eddings geneology I sent you the email about. If you
want to put an email for anyone to query about this geneology they can send
it to me at I have deleted a bunch of census notes
and family stories so it will be only 11 pages. Much more concise than the
original one. I am looking forward to seeing it on the Eddings Website.

Thanks, Jim McClure, Lexington, KY
