John Wiley Bedwell (Adams) was the second child and eldest son of Erasmus Bedwell and Letty Adams. He was born October 25 , 1855 in Letcher County Kentucky (his birth is recorded in the county records) On March 8, 1879 he married Nancy Jane Cornett (the half sister of Margaret Jane's husband John Cornett). TH marriage bond indicates this may have been John's second marriage but I have found no records of an earlier one. In later life John developed what would now probably be diagnosed as Alzheimer's disease. He as admitted to Eastern State Mental hospital in the early falloff 1929. Less than a month later, on September 25, 1929 John died. He was buried on the grounds of Eastern State Hospital but no record remains of the exact location. John's children are:
