  1. 1.0 1.1 Arthur Edwards born in Augusta County, Virginia August 16th or July 16, 1744 and January 15th, 1775 married Jane Withrow, a daughter of Robert Withrow of Pennsylvania. Soon after he returned to Virginia and purchesed a farm of 160 acres on Lick Run a branch of the North River or the Shenandoah. Deed dated June 15, 1779.

    On August 18, 1783 he sold 100 acres of this land to John Kilkenny and on March 26, 1785 sold the remainder to Thomas Cragg, and (2) two years later February 13, 1787 patented 135 acres of land located on the North River.

    Soon after, probably the same year, he together with his family moved to the Valley of Virgina removed west to Greenbrier County where he settled on Indian Creek (now Monroe County). Here he remained until 1801 where he again removed to the west and this time he located eight miles above Point Pleasant on the Ohio River, where he died in 1820.
