Before 1740 there were three families of Edmistons living in Chester County, Pennsylvania who were direct immigrants from Ireland. One of these three was David Turk Edmiston (d.1750), who married Isabella Thompson, and moved from Pennsylvania to Orange County, Virginia in 1740. Descendants and relatives lived in Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, California and elsewhere. The introduction cautions researchers not to confuse the Edmiston and Edmondson families, whose ancestry is distinct according to the author.

Includes Davis, Howell, Kemp, Marrs, Robinson, Taylor, Webb and related families.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
