|James Brown||RE: Norris Edmonds|
Your record came up when I was working on Ancestry on Norris Edmonds (1940-2011), son of Dorothy Belle Patteson (1921-1990) and Ralph Goodman Edmonds (1918-1973). We have established that Dorothy Belle Patteson's parents were Forest Fulton Patteson (1899-1980) and Ethel Odessa Coleman (1900-1983). She was divorced from Ralph Goodman Edmonds in 1969. Norris Edmonds was born during the period of her marriage to Ralph Goodman Edmonds, and is the brother of a cousin I'm in contact with.
I don't have any information regarding Mr. Colprit, but she would have had plenty of time to remarry between 1969 and 1990.
So, that seems a good match for Dorothy Patteson Colprit on Find A Grave Memorial# 25327078 as the mother of Norris Edmonds. There is some evidence that Ralph Goodman Edmonds may be buried in Westhampton Memorial Park, Richmond, Virginia. I didn't find a memorial to confirm this, so will follow up on it later, when I get the chance.
I will spend a few days this summer doing Ancestry research in Roanoke, Virginia. I don't know if I'll have time to stop in Richmond this year, so I may not be able to check the records and take a photo this time. As I live overseas, I only get to do actual "field work" on my family for a few days a year in the summer.
