Edmund Stringer marr Susannah (Lovell?).

He was first found in Louisa Co., VA in the mid-1700s.
His first wife was Frances Blackstone.

Edward died in Caswell Co., N,. C. and left a will which was probated in 1779.

He named his wife Judith and several children like
Reuben Stringer who married Elizabeth (last name unknown).

Reuben's son John who married Susannah Baker in Ashe co NC

Reuben's daughter Susannah Stringer, born December 13, 1776.
Married Samuel Burton. they settled in Pulaski Co., Ky.
She may have had a child/dau before her marriage.
Samuel left his estate to Parmela in his will.
He had written her name as Calloway then marked through it and put Stringer although he said he would refer to her as Parmela Burton in future mentions of her

Edwards' descendants moved to Kansas.
IN SE Kansas deeds/records of Sull. Co from 1854 to 1864
found at least 20 references, mostly
purchases of Stringers.
So much so that the area of Taylor Township is still referred to as the Stringer Hills.
They lived in a now defunct town of Lindley, but owned almost all the land north to Humphreys, Mo.
The town has a main drag called Stringer street, albeit the town has 104 people.
An 1876 atlas of Sull. Co. showed the sections of land that comprise the areas of Stringer Hills.

Edward was in York co., VA in 1715 and was first found in Louisa Co in 1740. In `1719, presume York Co

Frances Blackstone and Edward Stringer sued William Hilsman to release the estate of Robert Blackstone so his funeral could be paid.

So in 1719 they were not married but Edmund was born abt. 1721 so they probably married abt. 1720.

There was an Edward Stringer in York Co. abt 1665 but don't know if that was Edward's Father.
There was also another older Edmund in Louisa Co. who could have been his Father as he named his oldest son Edmund.
No one as of now has been able to connect Edward back further

1719 Edward Stringer and Frances STRINGER did file a suit together. I had previously said she was listed as Frances Blackstone in the suit but I made a mistake. She was Frances Blackstone in her Mother's will in 1716 and Frances STRINGER in the lawsuit in 1719 so they were probably married between 1716 and 1719.
