Re: Looking for Robert & John VA

Surnames: EDWARDS, SWAN, INGRAM
Don't know if this is your line or not but it might help.

I am not related to the Swan or Edwards family but have found conflicting information on line in relation to my research of the Ingram family. Here is the information as I have found it:

John Ingram, born circa 1671, Northumberland Co., VA, son of Thomas Ingram

John Ingram married Ann (maiden name unknown). NOTE: He DID NOT marry Ann Sisson--Ann was still a minor at the time of her father's will in 1730 and was still single at this time--so she is too young to be a wife to this John Ingram.

John Ingram wrote a will in 1720 and the will was probated in 1722.

In his will he refers to his wife, Ann and his daughter, Sarah Swan, wife of John Swan. He doesn't mention any grandchildren.

Next I find the will of Ann Ingram, widow of John Ingram. The will was written in 1732 and probated 8/12/1733, Northumberland County, Virginia.

In this will, Ann refers to:
grandaughter, Judith Swan--to receive negro girl Lucy when she reaches age of 18.
granddaughter, Ann--also under the age of 18.

These two girls probable birth dates are between 1720 and 1723.

In addition to the two granddaughters mentioned above, Ann Ingram mentions:

granddaughter, Mary Edwards--under the age of 18
granddaughter, Sarah Edwards--under the age of 18
grandson Thomas Edwards--not 21 yet
grandson Robert Edwards--not 21 yet

Ann leaves her "lands unto my loving son and daughter Thomas and Sarah Edwards".

This tells us that Sarah Ingram Swan remarried to Thomas Edwards after the death of her first husband.

I found a birth date of 6/19/1725 for Thomas Edwards Junior but have no documentation for this date. But it it is correct, then my assumption from the order of names in the will that Sarah married this Thomas Edwards Senior shortly after her father's will was probated--maybe even as early as 1722.

Judith and Ann Swan probably were born between 1720 when John Ingram wrote his will and 1722 when it was probated. I don't know why he didn't mention his grandchildren but that was not unheard of then. Perhaps he never updated it.

There is a deposition regarding the division of slaves in her mother's will given by Sarah Ingram EDWARDS-- dated 10/1/1768.

This brings up one of my questions--I have seen listings that say Sarah married a William Haynie as husband number 3 and had children by him.
She is still referred to as Sarah EDWARDS in 1768 and would be about 60 years old then.

Does anyone have more documented information on this Sarah and her life?
Thanks, Ginger
