If you have any information about Erasmus or any of his (or Letty Adams') children I would love to hear from you. Use the link at the left to contact me. I am always eager to hear from any Southeastern Kentucky Bedwells (or Adams' that should have been Bedwells)! Below are some contact links for some of Erasmus' other descendants who are also interested in solving the puzzles of our family.
Bedwell is not a very common surname. I have not found a lot of Bedwell specific web pages or resources. There are probably others I've missed (let me know if you've fopund them) these but these are the best I've found
The Bedwell Family Genealogy Forum is not as active as some but it is a place to find other folks interested in Bedwell family research and in the past there have been postings about Erasmus' family.
The Descendants of Robert Bedwell is a new site belonging to Ralph Bedwell. So far it looks great with lots of information about the early Bedwell family.
While not family specific the various state and county pages from the US GenWeb project are always useful. Links below will take you to the Kentucky and Virginia state pages as well as the pages for Leslie, Letcher and Perry Counties in KY and Grayson County in VA.
Leslie County Connections is a great site. Especially check out the Cemetery listings. Many of John Wiley's family are buried at the Singleton Cemetery and several of Nelson's children and grandchildren are at the Adams Cemetery. Grassy Gap and Hurricane are worth checking out too. As is Hardy Bottoms.....you get the idea!
This is a useful place to stop if you are looking for on-line census information for any of the Kentucky counties
Kentucky Vital Records Index. You can search death, marriage and divorce indexes
Bernice Colwell has a site that covers her family with lots of information on Lige Bedwell (Erasmus' youngest son) as well as some great family photos.
