||This article concerns Captain William Edmondson, killed 7 October 1780 at the battle of King's Mountain. He married Elizabeth Emiston, sister of Col. William Edmiston second in command under Col. Campbell at King's mountain. He is presumed to be closely related to Col. Edmiston, but the exact nature of the relationship is unknown. A good possibility is that he is the son of Person:William Edmondson (16), brother of John and Robert Edmiston, the progenators of most of the Edmiston's of Southwest Virginia. (See relationship diagram for the Edmiston family of Southwest Virginia, shown below.) On the otherhand, he could be a grandson son of William 16. (See Will of William Edmondson, 1779).
- ↑ Source:Allison, 1960 quotes an 1846 letter from William Edmiston's son Andrew Edmondson, to Governor David Campbell, in which Andrew says "My father was born in Cecil County, Maryland, in the year 1734." This letter was apparently used in part as the basis for Draper's biography of Edmiston.
