In 1866 council to his will, Etheldred made a cash gift to his daughter Mildred Bird to compensate her for the trouble and expense ... in consequence of my present illness at her house." Etheldred evidently died at the home of his daughters, who were Rebecca, Cordelia and Emma, Etheldred left, along with land, household furniture and agricultural implements."

We regret to announce the death of Mr. William C. Edwards, which occurred at his home in this county yesterday morning at seven o'clock. He leaves a wife and several children with whom we deeply sympathize in their bereavement. Paper dated 10-26-1883 so he must have died 10-25-1883.

William C. D. Edwards was hauling wood with a wagon and pair of mules. A crooked stick of wood was thrown on the wagon it bounced and hit one of the mules and frightened it.
