Revolutionary War

First American Flag 1777

A Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War from North Carolina, James EDMUNDSON, is listed in North Carolina Revolutionary, Soldiers, Sailors, Patriots, and Descendants Vol 1 page 69.   James married Penelope Stanton, and they had 13 children.   Elizabeth, Mary (Polly), Patsy, Burrell, John, Cullen, Bryant, Martha, Laney, Penelope, Theophilus, Pearce, and Wright. 

 The Last Will and Testament of James EDMUNDSON on file at the NC State Archives recorded April 6, 1799, states that James had over 2,000 acres of land, and a total of 19 slaves. 

Little is known about Penelope STANTON-EDMUNDSON other than that she was the wife of James and the mother of his 13 children.  Being a mother of 13 children, even today with all our modern conveniences, is a feat in itself!  Penelope applied for a Widow's Pension in April 1799 while living in Wayne County, North Carolina.
