Note: While using ANY genealogical website or program...please be informed that ANY possible family connections are NOT valid until they can be verified with documentation.

This Edington clan has been hard to trace and document - where I and others feel should be investigated more I have put "Questionable" in the suffix box - this is especially done if conflicing data has been given over the years and the seems to be carried on with little or no documentation to support the information given.

There has been alot of "assumptions" possibly because of the notes left behind by Talford Chaning Edington - but e collected ANYTHING Ediington in trying to research and connect the Edington's

Scope of Projec and goal is: To build a single, validated and documented shared family tree


  • 1) to create on Geni an accurate representation of the genealogical information
  • 2) to clean up duplicates and ensure quality of the involved profiles
  • 3) creating one master data base for the Edington line - to be used for:
  • .........to sort out the lines and connect the different lines into one large database for:
  • ..................proving and dis-proving and validating the connection to Philip Edington & Abigail Curtis
  • .........To find documentation to support the past research of others on this line -
  • .........To show the proper lineage connection for Luke John Edington-3078 was born 1762 in New Jersey/Bermuda Atlantic Islands. He died 8 Jan 185 in , Monroe, Tennessee. Luke married (1-MRIN:1219) Anna Hopkins-3151. Anna was born 1787 in Prob Smith Co Tn. She died 1832. Luke also married (2-MRIN:1236) Sarah Tipton-151, daughter of Edward Tipton-129 and Jemima Murray-113 (MRIN:96), on 1782 in Huntingdon Pa. Sarah was born 1766 in , Baltimore, Maryland. She died about 1830 in , Monroe, Tennessee.
  • 4) RULE - All profiles marked PUBLIC - with me as the controling manager ARE NOT TO BE CHANGED TO PRIVATE under any circumstances. UNLESS YOU ARE THE Living profile person and ASK for control of your profile - I have choosen to leave any profile I feel to be LIVIING blank of all data - birth, marriage etc. = only those of DECEASED status will contain data IF known
  • 5) IF possibly can we PLEASE leave and change the female spouse married to an Edington to the 'maiden Name' in the surname space only - leaving the "Maiden" name space blank for now - and to view her name as her birth/maiden name - this would help emenseley in the merging process

Major Researchers of the Past

Much of the early Edington data was collected by Talford C. Edington (1858-1934) he is a descendant of the Greene county Indiana Edington's his father being the son of Nancy Jane 'Nance" Edington who came to Greene county with her mother Margaret (Hardesty) Edington her son by by common-law-marriage to Samuel Chaney - most of which was not documented very well.

Viola Haynes (1909-1993) - who was a school teacher and also of the Greene county branch from Matilda Edington married David Reed line.

Minnie Cleo (Merritt) White (1899-1979) & her daughter wilma Sophronia (White) Ashcraft (1926-2002) - they also are of the Greene county branch - miine was the one who supplied me with my outline of theedingotn and double hardesty connection and told me i could fill in the blanks and would help when she got to feeling better - that did not come about as she was battling cancer.
