Arthur Edwards

Arthur, a Revolutionary War soldier, was in the battle of "Guilford Courthouse" under General Gates. In 1783, he bought land in the Shenandoah Valley, in Augusta Co, VA. Five years later, he moved to Greenbrier County and joined the settlers in and near Cook's Fort (now Monroe, Co, WV).

Isaac, son of Arthur and Jane (Withrow) Edwards, was 10 years old when the family came to Cook's Fort. At that time, there were five children. The rest of the 12, (four boys and eight girls) were at the fort before they came to Mason County in 1801.

Another source says Arthur settled in Mason County in 1808 with wife Jane and eight children.

Arthur Edwards born in Augusta County, VA, August 16th, 1744, and on January 15th, 1775, he married Jane Withrow, a daughter of Robert Withrow of Pennsylvania. Soon after, he returned to Virginia and purchased a farm of 160 acres on Lick Run, a branch of the North River or the Shenandoah. Deed dated June 15, 1779.

On August 18, 1783 he sold 100 acres of this land to John Kilkenny and on March 26, 1785, sold the remainder to Thomas Cragg and, two years later, on February 13, 1875, patented 135 acres of land located on the North River.

Soon after, probably the same year, he together with his family bade adieu to the Valley of Virgina and removed west to Greenbrier County where he settles on Indian Creek now Monroe County. Here he remained until 1801, where he again removed to the west and this time he located eight miles above Point Pleasant on the Ohio River. Here he died in 1820.
