Stepson born in Carroll Co., VA:
1.  Jasper Emmet EDWARDS, b. Apr 1869 

Jasper appears in the 1870 census living with Sarah EDWARDS and her parents (q.v.), before our subject married Sarah.  Jasper appears to be either Sarah's illegitimate child or perhaps an orphaned nephew.

Children with Sarah DAVIS:
apparently none
Children with Sarah Elizabeth EDWARDS born in Carroll Co., VA:
2.  Mary L. EDWARDS, b. 1874/5
3.  Hugh Elliot EDWARDS, b. Jul 1875 or 16 Jul 1877
4.  Agnes Almeda EDWARDS, b. 16 Mar 1878 
5.  Riley Andrew EDWARDS, b. 2 Mar 1881
6.  Laura Plutina EDWARDS, b. Jul 1883
7.  Ida M. EDWARDS, b. 3 Nov 1887
Said to have had these children:
.  Ivey EDWARDS, b. 1887; d. 29 Mar 1890, Carrol Co., VA
.  William Jefferson EDWARDS
But doubtful because Sarah twice says she only had seven children, and I would assume that includes Jasper.

The only explanation I have for Sarah's middle initial being "L" is that her nickname was "Lizzie" or "Lizabeth"; either that or it's simply enumerator error.

8.  1910 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Sarah has remarried and is living with her third husband, Andrew Jackson CARRICO.

9.  Email from Judy EDWARDS:
In the Carroll County Virginia Marriage index it has Sarah Edwards who married James Currin Edwards, parents are (James') Andrew J. and Mary Jane Edwards, (Sarah') Elisha C. and Agnes Edwards.  When Sarah E. married Joshua Sumner it lists her parents as Elisha and Agnes A. Edwards.  When Sarah E. married A. J. Carrico she is listed as Sarah E. Sumner with her parents listed as Hlisha and Egnis A. Cochran.  I think who ever transposed the names misread it as it sure looks like they ment Elisha and Agnes A. Edwards.  Agnes' maiden name was Cochran.
