I am Jim Baucom a descendant of Nelly Howard who married Littleberry Edwards.
Littleberry b about 1805 in SC. and Nelly b 1807 in SC.
Some have her birth year as 1827 because when you look at the microfilm 1860 census of Forsyth Co., GA it appears that she is 33 but if you look closely and check the 1850 census you will see that the 33 is actually 53. This also is supported by the fact that their son William b 1829 in SC.
Thanks again.
