Birth: 1807, Ireland
Death: Apr. 2, 1873
Merrickville
Ontario, Canada

Birth year calculated from age at the time of death. Died at 66 years of age.

Charles Edwards was predeceased by his wife Harriet Edwards. (nee Edwards). Her burial location is unknown but much of the extended Edwards family is buried in Franktown, Ontario. Harriet Edwards is said to have died in 1851. Their son Thomas Edwards in buried in the same cemetery as Charles Edwards (Merrickville Union Cemetery).

According to various Internet trees Charles Edwards was the youngest son of of John Edwards (1758-1851) and Mary Williams (1761 - 1851) and that his wife Harriet was the daughter of Thomas Edwards (1778 - 1851) and Sarah Kinch (1778 - 1854). Both Charles Edwards and his wife Harriet Edwards were born in Ireland according to census information.

Much information on the Edwards family was gathering in the 1960s when some lawyers approached various Edwards families with news of an unclaimed Estate of an Edwards man who died in New York City without airs. Unfortunately much money was paid to these lawyers with no money inherited in the end.

Due to that process (of trying to claim this estate), much of the Edwards tree was documented so these parents listed above may very well be correct.

Descendants of Charles and Harriet are finding each other via genetic genealogy DNA testing on such sites as FamilyTreeDNA and 23andme.
