Andrew Edmiston Edmondson
  • Born: 1750, Augusta County, Virginia
  • Married: Anne Edmiston Edmondson, 1773, Augusta County, Virginia
  • Child: Martha Edmiston Edmondson
  • Died: 10-7-1780, Kings Mountain, York County, South Carolina
  • Notes: "Andrew Edmiston/Edmondson was mustered as part of the Overmountain Men, the Virginia Patriot Militia in the Revolutionary War. He served under Colonel Campbell who commanded the Washington County, VA militia. They were mustered in 1780 or late 1779 and went ""overmountain"" to fight the British in a key battle: the Battle of Kings Mountain. Of about 1000 on either side, 250 British were killed, and the victorious Patriot army lost less than 40 men. Of the Washington County Virginia Rangers, 13 officers and a private were lost. Of eight men from the extended Edmondson/Edmiston family, 3 were killed including Andrew Edmiston, and 5 were wounded. The Historical Society of Washington County, VA has erected a plaque at the Mustering Ground to specifically honor members of the Edmiston/Edmondson family. One third of the men killed at the Battle of Kings Mountain were Virginia Patriot Militia."
