Edna Mae "Edonie" Kirkpatrick was born on 15 June 1888 in Marshall, Richmond County, Virginia, the daughter of James H. Kirkpatrick and Sarah Elizabeth Wolfe.[1][2]

In 1900, Edna F. Kirkpatrick lived in Fairfield Township, Northumberland, Virginia with her parents, James and Sarah E. Kirkpatrick, and 7 brothers and sisters.[3]

Based on the ages of their children, Edna M. Kirkpatrick and Clarence A. Huey were married about 1914. (Unsourced online family trees show that she was married on 18 July 1912.)

In 1940, Edna Knowles lived in Representative District 8, Sussex, Maryland, with her husband Harold W. Knowles and two Huey children.[4]

Edna M. Kirkpatrick Knowles died on 15 Aug 1881 and is buried at the Hollywood Cemetery, Harrington, Kent, Delaware. Her FindAGrave memorial shows that she was married to John Martin Schlagenhaft and Harold W. Knowles, but it omits Clarence Augustus Huey as a husband.[2]
