      Thanks to Raymond W. Ryan, Jr.
      Marriage Bond Date; they were married on January 15, 1829. In closing, I am available, if needed, for any further questions in regard to OUR ncestors & kin!

      Possibly the 1870 Halifax County Census was taken on or before April 1870, the month and year that James Edwards died, because after that date widow Elvira Boley Edwards had moved in with her daughter and son-in-law as shown on the 1870 Census of Cecil County, Md. 'age 63 widow.'
      Not unusual as my gggrandmother, Elizabeth Coghill
      Liggan (widow of Robert) is shown with her children on both the 1850 censuses of New Kent County and Henrico County.

      Kind regards,
      Raymond W. Ryan, Jr.
