Margaret Fore Edwards
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1837
Death: Jan. 10, 1892

Daughter of Jacob Fore and Elizabeth Fore. Birth year of 1837 is estimated by Fore family researchers as exact documentation is not available.

Married to James D Edwards on January 15, 1871 in Jefferson County, Iowa. She was his third wife. Note: James later married (but later divorced from) Emma Farnsworth Sartelle McCaddon at Polk County, NE. on Oct. 6, 1897.

Presumably Margaret is buried next to James D Edwards, but this contributor doesn't know for sure. The headstone may be simply "Mrs. James Edwards" with no dates.

Caution: it is possible that the "Mrs. James Edwards" headstone (if there is a headstone, which there may not be one according to Beth Sparrow) may not be for Margaret, but now that his first two wives are accounted for, and he divorced from Emma, it is now more likely that Margaret was either buried in this cemetery or in Seward, NE. This memorial is put in place in the likelyhood that Margaret was indeed buried in this cemetery; however if information can be provided to show otherwise then this contributor will certainly appreciate being informed so that the memorial can be updated or, if need be, deleted. (Update: it is possible that Margaret was buried in Seward, Seward County, Nebraska, where she and James lived in the 1880's. Which cemetery, if any, has yet to be determined. If she is found to be in a cemetery there then this memorial will be moved to that other cemetery by this contributor. //rkt Nov. 12, 2010).

Information for this memorial partly drawn from Jefferson County Iowa genealogy family group sheet information on the Jacob Fore family and notes by researchers.
