Indenture of 1748 between John Edmondson and wife Isabella, and Michael Wallace

Since this is dated to 1748 we KNOW this John Edmiston is not one of the Edmiston's who show up in Augusta County c 1740. I suspect this is also related to the early deed to William and John Edmonstone patent of 1737, above. Now, do we have TWO separate Edmondson families in this area, or is it one with several lines doing different things?..
