Hi Dollie,
I am researching the Edwards family in Onslow county, but but I see that
your Edwards are from Pitt County. Did they by chance come from Pitt to
Onslow? My husband is descended from Felix Edwards, b. 1814, in Onslow or
Duplin County. Possibly father to Felix is Matthew Edwards.

My husband is also descended from a Mary Cannon who married Lewis Smith in
1795, Craven County. My records say that Lewis Smith was from Pitt County,
so I thought maybe Mary Cannon was from Pitt as well. Below is an outline
of this family tree. Do you match up with any of these lines or do you have
a Mary Cannon in your files? I am trying to find the parents of Mary.

Any help on these two families are greatly appreciated. I am happy to share
what I have as well.
