William Henry Capps was the son of Henry Casey Capps and Emile Evalin Edwards. I am not sure if this is that that raised the Edwards children. My theory is that Henry Casey was on of the Edwards children but I haven't been able to prove it yet. I do know that either Henry Capps or Henry Casey Capps married an Indian woman and that is how my family has the dark skin. The reason I belive that Henry Casey was an Edwards is this: In the 1850 Henry Casey (9) was listed as an Edwards with his sibiling, Thomas (7), Patience (5), and Saphrona (3). In the 1860 census they were listed as Capps. So here is what I have starting with Henry Capps.

Henry Capps born about 1796 died after 1870. Married Chelley Roxanna Thompson, in 1818.

1. William Henry/Henderson b. ca 1819 d. Dec 1849 m. Emilie Jane Raines

m. Soloman Daughtry 3 July 1843
5. Kizziah Caroline b 1 Sep 1830 D 19 Apr 1894 m. William Daniel Holt 29 Apr 1858
6. John T. b 4 Dec 1825 d. 9 Oct 1905
m. Agnes Hawkins Talton 20 Aug 1862
7. Monroe b. ca 1835

The following were listed as Edwards. There is no marriage record found for Henry and Morning Edwards.
8. Henry Casey (my gggrandfather) B. ca 1841 m. 13 Apr 1867 Emilie Evaline Edwards
9. Thomas died before 1860
