    Thank you for such a wonderful website. I have learned a great deal. Edward Edwards was my third great grandfather.
    On the transcription, line 21, it says “said David Edward Edwards”. The image clearly does not show the name “David”. I believe the word “said” in the image looks like “David” and was transcribed as such in error.
    You are doing fabulous work and I certainly appreciate it.
