Fleming-Edmonds family

Hide Profile

The Fleming-Edmonds Family is descended from Col. William Fleming (1729-1795), who settled in Virginia ca. 1755 after emigrating from Scotland. A land speculator and soldier, Fleming served in the French and Indian War, Lord Dunmore's War and the Revolutionary War. Col. Fleming's papers include extensive correspondence from his parents, Leonard (ca. 1700-1775) and Margaret, who remained in Scotland, and Leonard Israel Fleming (1764-1845), who settled in Kentucky around the turn of the nineteenth century. Judge William B. Fleming (1843-1918), a grandson of Col. Fleming, was a judge and diplomat. His daughter, Mary Fleming (1880-1974), married Henry M. Edmonds (1878-1959) and moved to Alabama. This collection of papers comes from her descendants.
