George Kendrick Edmonds

M, b. 6 February 1830, d. 12 January 1917
     George Kendrick Edmonds was born on 6 February 1830 at New Albany, Floyd Co., IN. He began military service on 22 September 1864 at Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN, Civil War service, U.S. Army. He married Sarah Alice Snapp, daughter of David John Snapp and Mary Ann (?), on 23 February 1888 at Protem, Taney Co., MO. George Kendrick Edmonds died on 12 January 1917 at Isabella, Ozark Co., MO, at age 86 Biography and Obituary (

GEORGE KENDRICK EDMONDS was born in New Albany, Floyd County, IN, on 6 February 1830. He was the son of John Pratt Edmonds and Jane Reneau (or Reno). John Pratt Edmonds, a minister, was born 2 December 1803 in North Carolina and died 22 December 1885, possibly in Marion County, AR (where by 1880, he was living with his second wife, Elizabeth Rush Atkinson). Jane Reneau (or Reno) was born 12 March 1806 in Tennessee and died 26 May 1869; she last appeared on the 1860 census of Steele Township of Daviess County, IN. John and Jane were married 11 October 1822 in Jefferson County, TN.

George's five siblings were:

MEREDITH R. EDMONDS (1826-1874), married Eliza Ann Weddle
JOHN R. EDMONDS (1833-1903), married 1st; Emily Jane Newberry, married 2nd, Melvina
LEWIS RENEAU EDMONDS (1835-1923), married Harriet Sarelda O'Haver
JOSEPH EDMONDS (1838-1911), married 1st, Mary Van Meter; married 2nd, Kate Greene; married 3rd, Mary E. Watson
NARCISSA R. EDMONDS (1840-1928), married Greenberry Reynolds

All of George's brothers served in the Civil War. Meredith R. served with Co. E, 67th Indiana Infantry; John R. with Co. H, 51st Indiana Infantry; Lewis R. with Co. I, 97th Indiana Infantry; and Joseph with Co. F, 120th Indiana Infantry.

On 7 February 1852, George married Nancy Caroline Rider (who reportedly was of German and Cherokee Indian ancestry). Nancy was born 25 March 1834 in Indiana. George was 22 years of age, and Nancy was 17 at the time of their marriage. George became a physician by 1856. He and Nancy had the following 11 children:

JOHN PRATT EDMONDS (1852-bef. 1860
JACOB LEWIS EDMONDS (1854-aft. 1870)
ELBERT SEVIER EDMONDS (1857-1926), married Roena Leveridge Baugh
MARGARET JANE EDMONDS (1860-1945), married Morris Herd
SAMPSON TINCH EDMONDS (1862-1923), married Georgia Ann
CALVIN RUTER EDMONDS (1869-1945), married Effie Condreay
OLLIE BURKE EDMONDS (1872-1949), married Thomas Riley
THOMAS EDWARD EDMONDS (1875-1948), married Lellie Dee
MARY CAROLINE EDMONDS (1876-1966), married Isaac M. Anderson

On 22 September 1864, George enlisted into the 44th Indiana Infantry, at Evansville, IN. His Civil War compiled service records indicate that he was drafted and note his residence as Steele Township, Daviess County, IN. He was mustered in 17 October 1864 at Washington, Daviess County, IN. His description was given as follows: black eyes, black hair, dark complexion, and 5 feet 10 inches tall. Most of his time in the service was spent in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He was mustered out of the service on 29 May 1865.

After the war, George and his family did not remain in Indiana long. By 1866, they had moved to Bowers Mill, Lawrence County, MO, which was located on the Spring River – about 15 miles east of Carthage, Jasper County, MO. It is not known what lured the Edmonds family to that area, but perhaps they were in need of a physician. By 17 October 1869, George and his family relocated to Boone County, AR, where they began homesteading 160 acres of land near Lead Hill. George bought and sold land in Boone County in the 1870s, 1880s, and into the early 1890s, but for a time, the family lived in Isabella, Ozark County, MO, where Nancy died on 22 June 1887. George bought 209 acres just northwest of Lead Hill on February 5, 1881 and another 40 acres a little further northwest on January 6, 1885.

On 23 February 1888, George married Sarah Alice Snapp Burnett at her residence in Protem, Taney County, MO. George was 58 years of age and Sarah was 27 at the time of their marriage. (Sarah was the widow of David Henry Burnett, who had died 11 March 1886 at Protem. David and Sarah were the parents of three young children, Susan, Bert, and Robert.) Sarah was born 23 March 1860 in Fayetteville, Washington County, AR. On 5 June 1889, George and Sarah moved to Boone County, AR, where they had purchased 40 acres just northeast of Harrison.

By 1890, the Edmonds family had again returned to Taney County, MO. On 29 July 1890, George filed a Declaration for Invalid Pension form—for a disability he had incurred during the Civil War. He stated that in December 1864, at Chattanooga, TN, he contracted rheumatism from hardships and exposure. It is obvious from the documents in his pension file, that he suffered greatly from rheumatism and had great difficulty getting on a horse—therefore, making it a challenge to make house calls as a physician. In 1891(according to documents in his Civil War pension file), he used the post office address of Peel, Marion County, AR. By 1892, the Edmonds family had moved to the town of Bellefonte (near Harrison) in Boone County, AR. There is no evidence he ever bought land there. One son was born to George and Sarah Edmonds:

JOSEPH LAFAYETTE EDMONDS (1892-1986), married 1st, Edith Jane Peacock; married 2nd, Effie Condreay Edmonds (widow of his half-brother, Calvin)

By 1900, the family had moved back to Isabella, Ozark County, MO. Dr. George Kendrick Edmonds died of "pneumonia fever" on 12 January 1917 at the age of 86 years, one month, and six days. His death certificate indicated his occupation as physician and retired soldier. He was buried in Isabella Cemetery on 13 January 1917.
