Marriage bonds in old Burke Co, NC for Lewis' parents spell his father's name as "Edmiston". The spelling of the surname has undergone further changes since the families moved into north Georgia. There was a Richard Edmundson in the special 1834 census of Union Co. No variation of this surname is found in 1840 census of Union County, but appears in Union again in 1850.

By 1860, Fannin County had been created from parts of Gilmer & Union Counties. Lewis & Frances Edmondson are listed in the 1860 census of Fannin Co - HH #825

Francis Edmonson, 32, b NC
Mary Edmonson, 13, b GA
Hugh Edmonson, 10, b GA
George Edmonson, 8, b GA
William Edmonson, 2, b GA
George Roggers (sic), age 73, b GA (probably the father of Frances Rogers Edmondson).

(Also listed in 1870 census of Gilmer Co was J. Q. Edmondson, age 41, b GA - with wife & five children, all born in NC. None of these names found again in Gilmer Co.)

In 1880 census, Lewis & Frances Edmonson (sic), ages 65 & 50, respectively, have two additional daughters:

Armindy F. Edmonson, age 10, b GA

Amanda J. Edmondson & B. C. McHan were married Sep 10, 1882, Gilmer Co, GA; Bk 3, Pg 145. Barney Cicero McHan was son of Wilkie & Lucinda Taylor McHan. In 1900 census of Gilmer Co, Barney C. & Mandy McHan are living in the Tickanetley District - next door to Mandy's sister, Arminda (Mindy) & Jonathan Ellis. Barney & Mandy had been married for 18 years; Mandy had given birth to 8 children, all of whom were still living in 1900.

NOTE: In 1880 census of Gilmer Co is one "new" Edmonson family: Minard & Tabitha Edmonson, ages 42 & 37, respectively; both born in NC. They have seven children (all daughters), ages ranging from 18 down to 2 yrs; all were born in GA. Most (or all) of these seven daughters married during the 1880s-1890s to young men living in the Tickanetley District. No additional information on Minard and/or Tabitha Edmondson. Any relationship to Lewis & Frances Edmondson is unknown.
