Some interesting info here:
Believe "Lemmon" Edwards may have been the son of Levi Edwards and Margaret "Peggy" Joyner.Margaret was previously married to Duncan Lamon(s). Believe Duncan died about 1823, possibly Nash County, NC.Duncan's parents were Archibald Lamon and Olive Ruffin.
The Lamons' name evolved into many spellings, especially as their large families moved west into Tennessee - research has found them as Lemon, Lemmons, Lammon, etc.
Believe your "Lemmon" Edwards may have originally been "Lamon" Edwards.
One researcher has your "Lemmon Ruffin" as "Lemmon Gray" Edwards.Archibald and Olive Lamon also had a son Gray Lamon and a daughter, Olive Ruffin Lamon.
Also, other researchers have Levi Edwards' wife as "Celia" Joyner.Unknown if "Celia" and Margaret "Peggy" were the same person or if these two may have been sisters - but I believe they were the same person.
Have the following records on Levi and Margaret:
