Born in the Midwest, grew up so far south that it wasn't really the "South" because there were too many snow birds there. I've lived all over the Eastern Seaboard and even spent a year and a half overseas. I've loved, I've lost, I've done enough to know what I like and what I don't.
Genealogy is a passion that I keep coming back to even when life drags me away for years at a time. I feel that knowing where we come from helps us to plan where we are going. I think that learning about the challenges our ancestors faced helps us to face ours.
At some point this "biography" will read a bit more as it should instead of reading like a social media profile but I'm still young enough to need to worry about what information particularly about others I put out there to the public. I promise I'll leave a real bio to a trusted person to edit this when I'm gone if I don't outlive everyone that I need to be concerned about posting on here about and get around to doing it myself.
I am looking forward to collaborating with folks on WikiTree to grow our world wide family tree and create an accurate, documented database for future generations to access when they go searching for their history.
I have several projects going on including a One Place Study for Burke County, N.C. since I have several brick walls there and a number of One Name Studies. Come join me in building great resources for future generations.

I have Edwards father as Nathaniel and mother Sarah Kindrick . Wife Mary Edwards b.abt 1744. Wiki has William Cochran as father and Mary Preston Edwards b. 1750. These are incorrect.

I am not familiar with William Shoemaker of VA. You might want to look at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:US_Southern_Colonies and more specifically http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Southern_Colonies_British_Virginia to contact those leaders who are managing projects specific to Virginia for assistance. I work mostly on New England ancestors, and don't want to send you in the wrong direction. Welcome to WikiTree
