Notes for John Jackson Edwards: JOHN JACKSON EDWARDS was born on Oct 16, 1833 in Baltimore County, MD. After moving to McAllister Town, PA., he later moved to Bedford County, VA where he resided until the Revolutionary War was declared. His pension records (on microfilm at ETSU, Johnson City) shows that he volunteered and served many different hitches in the Army, including clashes with the Cherokee Indians and Creek Indians as he and his division marched from Bedford County to South Carolina in late 1776. After his tours in the Revolutionary Army, he moved to Jonesboro, TN. John's sister, Mary, married Christopher Taylor and they ran what may have been considered at that time, a boarding house. One of their most famous guests was Andrew Jackson. The Christopher Taylor log cabin has been preserved and stands in downtown Jonesbor. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/l/o/n/Christine-T-Longstreth/GENE7-0007.html
