Date: Wed, 31 Mar 1999
From: Karen Wofford

In the 24 years that I have been trying to find my 8 gg father, Abiah
Edwards of possibly Glamorganshire, Wales, this time period comes close
to when he entered America. He died in 1714-15 at Shrewsbury, Monmouth
County, NJ. He was in Chester County, PA had a wife named Mary Sutton,
son named Jonathan Edwards married Isabel Lewis who was a quaker. He
married (2) an Elizabeth-------surname unknown.
He had with Elizabeth the following children, Phillip, Naomi, Elizabeth.

Is it possible that he could be a relative, or brother of your William
My Abiah Edwards was a shipwright and a surveyor of land for Sarah Reape
which he later bought in Shrewsbury, NJ. He is listed a a yeoman and his
inventory says he owned a scowl.
He captained the ship Desire from Shrewsbury, NJ to New York, and I
can't find any references or passenger lists on this early colonial ship

At this time there lived in Chota a famous Indian woman named Nancy
Ward. She held the office of Beloved Woman, which not only gave her
the right to speak in council, but conferred such great power that she
might, by the wave of a swan's wing, deliver a prisoner condemned by
the council, though already tied to the stake.9 She was of queenly and
commanding presence and manners, and her house was furnished in a
style suitable to her high dignity. Her father is said to have been a
British officer, and her mother a sister of Attakullakulla.10 [p.165]
Her daughter, Betsy, was the Indian wife of General Joseph Martin. She
had a son, Little Fellow, and a brother, Long Fellow (Tuskegetchee),
who were influential chiefs.11 The latter boasted that he commanded
seven towns, while thirteen others listened to his talks; and though
he had once loved war and lived at Chickamauga, at the request of his
nephew, General Martin, he had moved to Chestua, midway between Chota
and Chickamauga, where he stood like a wall between bad people and his
brothers, the Virginians.12 Like her distinguished uncle, Nancy Ward
was a consistent advocate of peace, and constant in her good offices
to both races. She gave timely warning and assistance to the traders
when the young warriors dug up the hatchet in 1781;13 and delivered
condemned prisoners from the stake, as we shall see.". . .

[NI4981] They settled in what is now Trappe, PA, where the opened an Inn--The Three Crowns. Trappe is named after this Inn, related the following story from Richard W. Schrack (

"Trappe, Pa. is named for the inn established by the Schrack Family. the proper
name for the inn was THE THREE CROWNS. It seems that early in the inn's
existance it was composed of a small hut where the cooking was done, and what
they call a cave, probably the cellar for the soon to be built inn where the
food and spirits were provided for the customers. Anyway, on wintry night an
Englishman returned home quite enebriated and when asked by his perturbed wife
about his condition he replied that he fell into "The trap" at the inn and
couldn't find his way out. The name stuck and forever after was known as
"trappe" (In German)."
