History of Bates County, Missouri, by W. O. Atkeson, Historical Publishing Co. (1918):

pp. 950-952 – a long and interesting biography of Elliott F. Edwards and his parents, James P. Edwards and Leanna Hines. [Need a copy] Genealogical info from the biography includes: Elliott b. 1886 on his father’s farm near Butler, Bates County. James P. Edwards b. 12 Jun 1838 in Nashville, Tenn. Came west and located at Brunswick in 1864, engaging in business for a while in Fort Garland, Colorado, in 1865. After a short sojourn in Brunswick, came to Butler in February 1870. Died 16 Jul 1913, interment in the cemetery at Butler. Leanna Hines is a native of Brunswick, Missouri, daughter of John S. and Nannie (Pollard) Hines. “John S. Hines was a native of Keyesville, Virginia and of English descent. His father was a wealthy plantation owner, the proprietor of a vast tract of land in Prince Edward and Charlotte counties. He was the master of a large number of slaves. Nannie (Pollard) Hines was a native of Marysville, Virginia. To John S. and Nannie Hines were born six children: Edward, deceased; Richard, deceased; Thomas J., deceased; Sue, who was educated in an academy at Goldsboro, North Carolina, now residing at Butler, Missour; Emily F., the wife of J. C. Congor, Macon, Georgia; Leanna, the widow of James P. Edwards, Butler, Missouri, the three daughters being the sole survivors of the family. The Pollards, as well as the Hines family, were wealthy plantation owners of Virginia. James P. and Leanna (Hines) Edwards were the parents of seven children: Lola, deceased; Lela, the wife of C. H. Congor, Washington, D.C.; Lula, the wife of M. S. Horn, Butler, Missour; Lon L., a prosperous farmer, Butler, Missouri; Claude, a successful merchant, Oakland, California; Elmer, deceased; and Elliott F., the subject of this review. Mrs. Edwards, the widowed mother, resides at the present time in Butler.”

Elliott married Cleo Moore 14 Jan 1908, two children: Elliott F., Jr., and Leomi. Cleo is a daughter of J. M. and Naomi (Browning) Moore. January 14 was the anniversary date for the marriages of Mr. and Mrs. James P. Edwards, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Moore, and Mr. and Mrs. Elliott F. Edwards. The oldest child in both the Moore and Edwards families was a daughter and both girls were born on the same day of the same month. [Note: the Moore’s oldest child was Clara L., wife of Clarence Harrison.]

  1. Thank you for the information you posted on John S. and Nancy Hines and their descendants. This was valuable information in my effort to trace this part of my family. Thank you for your time and effort

  2. George B. McCay (McKay or McCary) was my 3rd Great Grandfather. His sister was Aurora B. McKay. Aurora and John Hines were married in 1848, so she can’t be the mother of most, if not all, of the Hines children. Was Jemima North the mother of Jemima W., Maria, John S., James, Frances, Lucy, and Mary?

  3. Sorry George was my 4th Great Grandfather, not 3rd.

  4. Barbara Doody

    John W. Hines’ first wife was Frances North, daughter of John North and Frances Thackston (Thaxton). They had several children before he remarried to Aurora B. McKay.

  5. Barbara Doody

    Should have also said the daughter of John W Hines and Frances North was Jemima Hines who married John D. Adams, born Charlotte Co., died Mason Co., WV

  6. Suzanne Stewart

    How does one get in touch with Barbara Doody?
