About Mary Ruth Edwards

John and Ruth came to present day Yancey County in 1790, bringing eight of their twelve children with them. Two years after their arrival here, they applied for a divorce. It so happens this is the first divorce recorded in Buncombe County, a portion which was later to become Yancey County. The land deeds record that John got all the land they owned jointly, consisting of several hundred acres. Ruth received a roan mare and a feather bed.
