Edward was born about 1745. As to him being born in Greenville, South Carolina in 1745? Greenville did not exist at this date - in fact this was an area which were the traditional hunting grounds for the Cherokee and colonists were officially not allowed. A few colonist did move into the area, and bought land from the Cherokee prior to the land being opened for settlement, though very few did. If indeed Edward was born in the modern are of Greenville, it would be good to figure out what to call where he was born. It would be Colleton or Berkeley County from 1710 to 1735. Two forts were built in the 1750's, Fort Prince George and Fort Woods which was the first official foray into Cherokee territory.Evolution of South Carolina Counties and Map of SC Counties in 1775
